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.
A2124: ROUTE OF CURRENT RECONCILED MEDICATION LIST TRANSMISSION PATIENT
Last time we reviewed the guidance for the method of providing a reconciled medication list to providers. This time let’s look at the guidance for patients.
Discharge from agency
For Home Health at DISCHARGE, complete A2124 only if:
M0100, This Assessment is Currently Being Completed for the Following Reason =
9. Discharge from Agency
– AND –
M2420, Discharge Disposition =
1. Patient remained in the community (without formal assistive services)
– OR –
4. Unknown, because patient moved to a geographic location not served by this agency
– OR –
UK. Other unknown
Indicate the route(s) of transmission of the current reconciled medication list to patient, family, and/or caregiver.
CHECK ALL THAT APPLY
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 patient/family, and/or caregiver 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.
