Oasis-E Spotlight: Provision of Current Reconciled Medication List to Subsequent Provider at Transfer

May 8, 2023

Making sense of CMS guidelines is more challenging than ever after the launch of OASIS-E and the abundance of changes that go along with it. KanTime’s OASIS Spotlight series will spotlight specific OASIS items to simplify the ruling and help clinicians significantly improve their understanding of OASIS so they can move forward with accuracy.

A2120: PROVISION OF CURRENT RECONCILED MEDICATION LIST TO SUBSEQUENT PROVIDER AT TRANSFER

The intent of this item is exactly what it seems, to identify whether the home health agency provided the subsequent provider with a current, reconciled medication list to promote continuity of care.

Transmission of this information is critical for supporting patient safety and quality care. The information should be provided to the subsequent provider as close as possible to the actual time of transfer.

This item is only completed when the patient is transferred, with or without discharge, to an INPATIENT FACILITY.

Per the OASIS E- Guidance Manual: “While the patient may receive care from other providers after discharge from your agency, such as primary care providers, other outpatient providers, and residential treatment centers, these locations are not considered to be a subsequent provider for the purpose of coding this item.”

Time points:

Transfer

Complete M 2120 only if M0100 ,This Assessment is Currently Being Completed for the Following Reason =

Transferred to an inpatient facility – patient not discharged from agency
– Or –
Transferred to an inpatient facility – patient discharged from agency

At the time of transfer to another provider, did your agency provide the patient’s current reconciled medication list to the subsequent provider?

Code 0, No if at transfer or discharge to a subsequent provider, your agency did not provide the patient’s current reconciled medication list to the subsequent provider.

Code 1, Yes if at transfer or discharge to a subsequent provider, your agency did provide the patient’s current reconciled medication list to the subsequent provider.

Code 2, NA if at transfer to a subsequent provider, your agency was not made aware of the transfer in a timely manner and was, therefore, unable to provide the patient’s current reconciled medication list to the subsequent provider.

Dash IS NOT a valid response for this item.

We provide clinicians that are part of the KanTime enterprise system with links to the guidance from CMS for each individual OASIS item.
