Abstract

A new tool is available for agencies to use with their patient tally reports derived from OASIS data. By using queries submitted to the outcome and case mix tally reports, agencies can select a group of care episodes for follow-up in the process-of-care investigation portion of their outcome enhancement activities. An example of how an agency used the tool to select care episodes for review is provided.
