Home Health Therapy: Using OASIS is organized by Western Schools and will be held from May 16, 2017 - May 16, 2020.
Home health care is the fastest growing industry in the United States based upon the projection period of 2014 to 2024. The demand and competition for licensed rehabilitation therapists to work in home health care are, and will be, great. Therapists currently working in or planning to work in home health agencies must have an understanding of the significance 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 patient's stay in home care.
The purpose of this basic-level course is to provide home healthcare physical therapists with the information they need to understand the significance and importance of effectively using the OASIS instrument in order to deliver comprehensive, compassionate, patient-focused, and cost-sensitive skilled services in the home environment. By completing this course, therapists new to the home health setting will gain the knowledge needed to begin working with the OASIS tool as part of orientation in delivering certified home health therapy and overall care. This course focuses on OASIS-C2, the most recent update to OASIS, which went into effect January 1, 2017.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
