OASIS Data Accuracy is More Important than Ever!

Teleconference Series

Midwest Care Alliance is teaming up with the Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina to offer


OasisOASIS Data Accuracy
is More Important than Ever!

A Four-Part Teleconference Series

Be Sure Staff Have the Training They Need!

This affordable series of 4 teleconferences will cover the OASIS section by section and discuss the problematic areas and provide an opportunity for questions and answers.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require the collection of OASIS items on all appropriate home health patients at several time points.  CMS provides both annual and quarterly updates to their guidance on how to appropriately respond to the items.  Are you current with this evolving guidance?

These educational teleconferences will focus on assisting home health clinical staff, QI Coordinators and supervisors who want to increase their knowledge related to OASIS completion and will cover the requirements for the two OASIS credential exams--the Certificate for OASIS Specialist Clinical (COS-C) and the Home Care Clinical Specialist OASIS (HCS-O) and offer tips to prepare for the exams.

Enjoy the convenience and cost-efficiency of a teleconference workshop. There is
no travel time involved and no limit to the number of attendees from your agency who may participate at your site through one hook-up. All you need to participate is a speaker telephone. You will be provided a toll-free number.

Presented by:

Heather Jones, MPH, CHES, COS-C, the Director of Quality Initiatives and State Liaison for AHHC/SCHCA.  Prior to joining the Association, Heather was with the Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization. Heather is a Certified Health Education Specialist and holds a Certificate as an OASIS Specialist-Clinical.
