CradleMRx releases update for OASIS C2 2017

CradleMRx is ready for the OASIS C2 2017 update.  You will notice that previous OASIS will remain functional under the old OASIS C1 ICD-10 format.  Any new OASIS, as of January 1st, 2017, will be under the newly updated OASIS C2 format.

Background Information from CMS

Per CMS, “effective January 1, 2017, OASIS-C2 is the current version of the OASIS data set.  It was developed from OASIS-C1/ICD-10 to accommodate new data being collected for the Home Health Quality Reporting Program in support of the IMPACT Act.” For full details visit the CMS site here.

CradleMRx’s new OASIS C2 2017 uses updated technology for optimum speed.  It will also implement augmented compliance features where applicable by showing the current selection in the given sections of the OASIS in an ORANGE box.

Expected Changes

  •  The OASIS C2 version includes three new standardized items (M1028, M1060, GG0170c), along with modification to and renumbering of select medication and integumentary items to standardize with other post-acute settings of care (M1311, M1313, M2001, M2003, and M2005).
  •  The lookback period and item number was changed in five items (M1500, M1510, M2015, M2300 and M2400).
  •  Formatting changes were made throughout the document to convert multiple check boxes to a single box for data entry, where responses are mutually-exclusive, and to change the numbering for pressure ulcer staging from Roman to Arabic numerals.
  •  The complete set of OASIS-C2 data items can be found in the Downloads section here.
