Qualidigm recently released a Quality Quick Minute – Home Health Edition videos series focused on the OASIS-D1 changes. This videos series is comprised of four brief, 90 second information videos outlining these changes to assist with preparation in anticipation of the January 1 effective date.

There were 3 key changes highlighted in the CMS memo from July 2019.  The changes include:

  • 23 existing OASIS items now being identified as “optional”
  • two existing items being added to the follow-up timepoint
    • M1033 Risk for Hospitalization
    • M1800 Grooming
  • CMS is waiving the requirement for the M0090 date to be the actual date of completion
    • when the 5-day re-certifiction window falls within the last 5 days of 2019
