OASIS-E Spotlight: Route of Current Reconciled Medication List Transmission to Subsequent Provider

June 5, 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.


After reviewing the guidance for providing a reconciled medication list to providers and/or patients, now let’s look at the OASIS items that address the method(s) in which that list was delivered.

Time points:

Discharge from agency

For Home Health at TRANSFER, complete A2122 only if :

M0100, This Assessment is Currently Being Completed for the Following Reason =
6. Transferred to an inpatient facility – patient not discharged from agency
– OR –
7. Transferred to an inpatient facility – patient discharged from agency

For Home Health at DISCHARGE, complete A2122 only if :

M0100, This Assessment is Currently Being Completed for the Following Reason =
9. Discharge from Agency
– AND –
M2420, Discharge Disposition =
2. Patient remained in the community (with formal assistive services)
– OR –
3. Patient transferred to a non-institutional hospice

Indicate the route(s) of transmission of the current reconciled medication list to the subsequent provider.

A. Electronic Health Record
B. Health Information Exchange
C. Verbal (e.g., in-person, telephone, video conferencing)
D. Paper-based (e.g., fax, copies, printouts)
E. Other Methods (e.g., texting, email, CDs)

Dash IS NOT a valid response for this item.

Note: EHR/EMR may be selected if the list is transmitted  or provided access to via the EHR-including provider portal access.

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