Tampa, FL, January 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- As OASIS-C introduces ten brand new process measures for home health caregivers, Care2Learn rushes to provide ten understandable explanations.
Care2Learn’s newest online course series is designed to help an estimated 9,000 Medicare-certified home health agencies (HHA) navigate new government compliance requirements. Beginning January 1, 2010, revisions to OASIS requirements went into effect, called OASIS-C, and any HHA seeking Medicare certification must be aware of these new rules. The first course in the highly anticipated OASIS-C training series, OASIS-C Part 1: Process Measures, has been released to help students understand how to implement ten entirely new process measures. The inclusion of process measures is among the biggest changes to OASIS reflected in OASIS-C.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services adopted the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) quality control and data collection tool in 1999. This is the most comprehensive revision of OASIS in its 10 year history. Because of the importance of the release of OASIS-C, Care2Learn, the leader in online continuing education for the post-acute healthcare market, responded with an intense and timely educational tool to help caregivers and administrators ensure they provide the most compassionate, compliant care in the field.
“OASIS-C Part 1: Process Measures,” familiarizes students with the three types of quality measures, identifies the ten process measures that are incorporated into OASIS-C, explores the purpose of the Plan of Care Synopsis and explains what is required for each; describes assessment strategies for each of the process measures, and, using charts and interactive quizzes, helps students learn the appropriate assessment data elements.
Care2Learn’s OASIS-C Part 1: Process Measures is part of Care2Learn’s exclusive webcast library. The highly interactive 2-hour online course is broken down into easy-to-follow video segments that students can complete at their convenience. To ensure learning on this critical topic, interactive review activities help reinforce key concepts and maximize retention.
Founded in 2000, Care2Learn provides online education solutions to the post-acute healthcare market, which includes nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and home healthcare and hospice facilities. The Care2Learn course library includes approximately 2,600 accredited course hours delivered to more than 161,000 healthcare professionals in all 50 states.
