Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) working in home health agencies must understand of the importance of process and outcomes measurement. The Outcome and ASsessment Information Set (OASIS) is a specific assessment and outcomes measurement instrument that consists of 111 items or questions and measures patient data at various times during the home care stay. The OASIS is mandated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and SLPs are authorized to complete this tool, with proper training. SLPs taking this intermediate level course will be aware of the time and accuracy requirements related to OASIS documentation and levels of compliance.

 

This program is offered for 0.20 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate-Level, Professional Area)
