OASIS Data Sets

The instrument data collection tool used to collect and report performance data by home health agencies is called the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS). Since 1999, CMS has required Medicare-certified home health agencies to collect and transmit OASIS data for all adult patients whose care is reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid with the exception of patients receiving pre- or postnatal services only. OASIS data are used for multiple purposes including calculating several types of quality reports which are provided to home health agencies to help guide quality and performance improvement efforts.

OASIS-D is the current version of the OASIS data set. It was implemented on January 1, 2019. OASIS-D includes multiple new standardized items to support measurement domains mandated by the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014.
