OASIS solutions are meant to assist home health agencies and aim to provide proper care to the patient.

FREMONT, CA: A healthcare organization Relias, considered as a trusted partner to more than thousands of healthcare organizations across the globe, has introduced the release of OASIS: Assessing at Start of Care. This new course aims to provide an interactive, scenario-based learning modality for home health agencies.

Relias is a platform that provides better clinical and financial outcomes for more than 10,000 clients. Relias learning management system, Relias onboarding, Relias obstetrics, Relias emergency department, Relias custom content, Relias practice performance management, and many more are the products of the company. Relias have been in the field of companies providing online training programs to organizations with specialized needs since 2002.

The Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) is a group of standard data, reviews of which can be completed quickly, often within two business days. It also benefits the home health agencies with skilled experts to take care of critical patients.

Relias extends comprehensive solutions for home health organizations to improve patient outcomes. Their solutions train remote staff, help to retain the best staff and partners to develop effective quality assurance programs and care plan models. The organization has an alliance with the National Council, PointClickCare, Skillsoft, Ancor, The Joint Commission, and many others to solve the challenges.

Relias automates orientation, streamlines training, provides easy access, and increases consistency. The company has branched into sectors such as hospitals and health systems, mental health, skilled nursing, assisted living, palliative care, rural health, health plans, and home care.

OASIS is a patient-specific, standardized assessment used in Medicare home health to plan care, determine reimbursement, and measure quality. It is designed to collect information about items related to a home care recipient’s demographic information, clinical status, functional status, and service needs. OASIS has achieved a good place in the home health industry.

 “Accurate OASIS coding can have a significant financial impact on a home health agency,” stated Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias. “OASIS is integral to the case-mix variable “Functional Impairment Level” of the PDGM and also contributes to an agency’s Quality Metrics that appear on the Home Health Compare website, leading to large impacts reimbursements and referrals.”

The OASIS project is now considered very important for the home health industry. The unique design of this document helps home health agency members mould their working pattern. OASIS provides standardized care practices to the patients and maintains a record of the same, it is also beneficial in the case of medicare audits. Quality managers could conduct random sample reviews of OASIS forms to make sure they are completed correctly and uniformly.

Relias allows clients to deliver better clinical and financial outcomes by reducing variation in care.

The Relias OASIS simulation course guides are designed to provide an opportunity to practice analyzing patient assessment data for OASIS-D items using a holistic and efficient approach. Earlier, evaluation in the home health environment was performed in a linear fashion, which is not being practiced now.
