Regulatory Leader in OASIS Documentation Introduces OASIS-C Products
Date:10/12/2009

DES MOINES, Iowa, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs, a leading provider of solutions to improve clinical outcomes and reduce operating costs in the home care market, today announced new OASIS-C products to meet extensive regulatory changes mandated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The new OASIS-C products include Briggs' proprietary documentation for all OASIS assessment forms as well as a new online training course to support the regulatory changes.

The OASIS-C assessment enables home health care providers to capture more data while reducing the chance for errors and omissions in patient documentation. In addition to affecting the patients' program of care, errors and omissions can impact an agency's regulatory compliance, delay or minimize reimbursements and increase operating costs.

"Briggs' OASIS-C assessments include proprietary information to address three key areas: addressing problems before they become serious, treating existing conditions as efficiently as possible and intervention prior to re-hospitalization," says Sharon Hamilton, RN, BAB, CNLCP, CFDS, Briggs' Clinical Consultant-Home Care. "Unlike other assessments, Briggs provides the safeguards agencies need to stay compliant and maximize reimbursements."

Briggs backs up its new OASIS-C documentation with an online training course, accessible to home care clinicians through their computer. The 7-hour, 11 section course covers all the CMS changes, uses interactive modules to fully engage participants and offers pre- and post-testing features to help gauge improving proficiency.

In developing the OASIS-C products, Briggs has built on its core competencies as the regulatory leader in OASIS documentation. According to an independent study conducted by OCS, Inc., home care agencies using Briggs' OASIS forms report better outcomes for all CMS measurements, lower occurrence rates, reduced resource utilization and reduced costs per visit.
