CMS Releases a New Version of OASIS for 2020

CMS has announced changes to OASIS for 2020. Fortunately for providers, they are relatively minor and will be easy to implement.

From CMS: “Beginning January 1, 2020, changes to the OASIS data set and data collection guidance take effect…Changes include addition of two existing items to the Follow-Up assessment instrument (with corresponding revisions to the All Items instrument) and change from required to optional data collection at certain time points for 23 items. There is no revised version of the OASIS-D Guidance Manual for 2020.”
