The OASIS-D assessment is very similar to the previous OASIS-C2 with the color-coded sections remaining the same.
Many of the tabs now contain less information due to the removal of 28 items.
The seven modified items in OASIS-D are dispersed throughout the assessment tabs:
M1028 in the Patient History & Diagnoses tab has been revised to include a “None of the above” response option.
In the Integumentary Status tab, the language in items M1306, 1311, 1322 and 1324 has been revised for consistency with the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel.
In the Care Management tab, several responses have been removed from M2102 in the Start of Care OASIS.
Lastly, in the Emergent Care tab of the Discharge OASIS, 15 response options have been removed from M2310 leaving four response options.
All six of the new items are contained in a new Functional Abilities & Goals tab.
The first four new items comprise the GG section and assess Functional Abilities and Goals. These items include:
Our Apply to All feature on this tab allows all items in a section to be completed with a single click, maximizing efficiency and ease of use, and reducing documentation time.

The last two new items comprise the J section and assess Health Conditions Related to Falls. These items are:
As you prepare to transition to OASIS-D, the M0090 Date Assessment Completed item is extremely important because it determines whether OASIS-C2 or OASIS-D should be used. OASIS-C2 assessments must be completed by December 31, 2018. OASIS-D assessments can be completed on and after January 1, 2019. M0090 appears under the Clinical Records section of the Demographics tab.
Remember that previous OASIS-C2 notes cannot be loaded into OASIS-D notes, due to the changes.
Visits scheduled on or after January 1, 2019, should use OASIS-D assessments to comply with CMS requirements.
