New Changes for OASIS C2 Data Sets Revisions
November 8, 2016, new revisions to OASIS-C2 item set. Select Data’s very own Compliance Officer, Susan Carmichael, MS, RN, CHCQM, and VP of Services Integration, Pam Hernandez, found an issue with multiple OASIS answers in the latest release from CMS for the OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual 6-29-16. Carmichael notified the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services of these inconsistencies last month. A corrected version of the OASIS C-2 Item Set, correcting 2 minor typos on page 3 of the all-time points version, has been posted on the OASIS Item Set page. The document can be found in the Downloads section (CMS, 2016).
