Guidance on OASIS Skin and Wound
Share |

With the update to OASIS-C1 the WOCN Society has a new guideline, Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society's Guidance on OASIS-C1 Integumentary Items: Best Practice for Clinicians.

OASIS-C1 is a modification to the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) that Home Health Agencies must collect in order to participate in the Medicare program. This is the second update of the OASIS since it was implemented in 2000.

This update includes changes to prepare for ICD-10 implementation in 2014. The system for wound classification uses terms that lack universal definition and clinicians have verbalized concerns that they may be interpreting these terms incorrectly. The WOCN Society has therefore developed the following guidelines for the classification of wounds. These items were developed by consensus among the WOCN Society panel of content experts.
