Abstract

OASIS-derived outcome reports first became available to home care agencies in February 2002 and depicted the agency's current (observed) outcome achievement rate as compared to a reference (predicted) rate on 41 separate outcomes. New three-bar reports are now available that allow agencies to evaluate their current outcome rates against their previous year's rates and a reference rate. This article compares the newly-available three-bar reports with the prior two-bar reports, including information provided in those reports in the OBQI process.
