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.
O0110: Special Treatments, Procedures, and Programs
- Start of Care
- Resumption of Care
- Discharge from Agency
Clinicians are expected to utilize multiple sources to determine the appropriate responses for O0110.
- Facility medical records
- History and Physical
- Transfer documents
- Discharge summaries
- Medication lists/records
- Clinical progress notes
- Discussions with acute care hospital staff, other clinicians, the patient/family/caregiver(s)
- Do not check services that were provided solely in conjunction with a surgical procedure or diagnostic procedure, such as IV medications. Surgical procedures include routine pre- and post-operative procedures.
- For O0110A1 (Chemotherapy), O0110B1 (Radiation), and O0110J1 (Dialysis), check if the patient is undergoing treatment at the time of assessment.
Stay tuned for next Monday’s spotlight so your practice can continue to stay ahead of the curve and provide elite patient care through the OASIS-E changes.
We provide clinicians that are part of the Kantime enterprise system with links to the guidance from CMS for each individual OASIS item.
