On March 18, 2013 during the National Association for Home Care & Hospice’s March on Washington/Private Duty Home Care Integrated Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C., a representative from CMS announced that there will be some significant releases in the next several months-including a draft of OASIS-C1, guidance on how new survey sanctions will be implemented and updated Conditions of Participation.
A draft of the new version of the OASIS assessment is scheduled to go the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final review and will be published in the near future. Once the draft is published, there will be a comment period.
As soon as these updates are published, QIRT Alerts will let you know!
