Having an effective ongoing competency assessment program allows regulatory compliance for competency assessment, OASIS data collection, and information management, while enhancing existing quality management efforts. This article provides an overview of the competency assessment process, its regulatory underpinnings, and describes how this process fits into the existing performance and quality measurements within a home care organization.
