OASIS-C2 Cheat Sheet: Obstacles to Data Accuracy

The OASIS-C2 dataset contains significant changes that affect the clinician’s assessment strategies and require renewed focus to ensure compliant application of guidance.  Obstacles to data accuracy associated with the OASIS-C2 version include:

  • Inadequate understanding of three new items and their importance as factors in risk-adjustment of the new IMPACT outcome “Percentage of Patients with Pressure Ulcers that are New or Worsened”;
  • Insufficient recognition of modifications in renumbered pressure ulcer and medication items due to standardization with other post-acute data collection;
  • Failure to adhere to a new uniform “look-back” period in five items collected at Transfer, Death at Home, or Discharge; and
  • Significant guidance manual changes (such as in pressure ulcer documentation).

This Cheat Sheet describes these obstacles and will mitigate risk of inadequate or inaccurate documentation.  Take advantage of this opportunity to make sure your clinical team masters the many challenges introduced in OASIS-C2.
