OASIS D was implemented in 2019 yet agencies are still struggling with how to answer the new GG and J questions and starting in January 2020 OASIS D-1 changes will start. In addition, the OASIS impact on reimbursement has changed under PDGM including new OASIS functional items. Strong documentation is the key to accurate coding when identifying the appropriate primary diagnosis to determine the clinical group and all pertinent diagnoses relevant to payment. The upcoming regulatory changes will increasingly bring challenges to clinician’s documentation competency for both payment and to meet the CoP standards. But not all the burden falls on the clinicians

In this comprehensive session, the home health and hospice expert Diane Link, RN, MHA, will review the OASIS D: GG and J questions and how best to assess and answer questions to best describe the patient condition.
