PREFACE
OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual
Effective 1/1/2017 i
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
This manual provides guidance for home health agencies (HHAs) on how to ensure the collection of high-quality
(accurate) OASIS data. It includes both general data collection conventions and item-specific guidance, as well as
links to quality-related resources for agencies.
Since OASIS collection was implemented in 1999, national interest in the area of home health care quality
measurement and improvement has been ongoing. CMS received hundreds of comments about OASIS from a
variety of sources: providers, professional organizations (e.g., American Nurses Association and the American
Physical Therapy Association), home care provider organizations, accrediting organizations, researchers, etc. In
addition, individuals and groups with expertise in health care quality measurement, such as the Medicare Payment
Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the National Quality Forum (NQF), and several technical expert panels
commissioned by CMS to guide OASIS evolution have offered suggestions for improving OASIS and expanding the
domains of home health quality measurement to address the six aims (safety, timeliness, effectiveness, efficiency,
equity, and patient-centeredness) articulated by the Institute of Medicine in their 2001 report “Crossing the Quality
Chasm.”
Input from the NQF, a nonprofit organization that endorses national consensus standards for measuring and publicly
reporting on performance, has been especially valuable in guiding the evolution of OASIS and associated
performance reports. NQF-endorsed voluntary consensus standards are widely viewed as the gold standard for
measurement of health care quality. NQF has endorsed a number of OASIS-based quality measures for public
reporting. Endorsed measures are periodically reviewed for continuing endorsement, and, as measure development
continues, new or revised measures are submitted to NQF for review.

4. Revision 3: January 2012
5. Revision 4: December 2012
6. OASIS-C1/ICD-9 Guidance Manual: June 2014
Note: Past revisions of the guidance manual have included an “errata” document that indicated where changes had
occurred so that HHAs could replace only those manual pages that had changed. Because this revision is
substantially more extensive than previous updates, this manual was intended to replace in its entirety the OASIS-C
Guidance Manual and as such, changes to specific sections or pages were not tracked. However, there was a table
included at the beginning of Chapter 3 that indicated which OASIS items and which item-by-item guidance sections
had been revised.
7. OASIS-C1/ICD-9 Guidance Manual: January 2015
Changes in this version included a new Chapter 2, in which the “draft” notation was removed from the OASIS forms
and the OMB number was added to each time point version. The footer date throughout the entire manual was
changed to January 2015.
8. OASIS-C1/ICD-10 Guidance Manual: October 2015
This version of the manual included changes required to incorporate the newly-implemented ICD-10-CM codes into
both the guidance manual and the corresponding OASIS-C1 data set items. The footer was changed in all chapters,
including those that did not have changes related to the implementation of ICD-10-CM.
9. OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual: Effective January 1, 2017
This version of the manual replaces the previous version in its entirety. This version includes changes required for
standardization with other post-acute care data sets. Three new standardized items and guidance, and five revised
items and guidance are included in this version. Other changes include guidance for a revised look-back period for
five items, and clarifications in response to questions submitted to the OASIS Help Desk.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Chapter 1 OASIS Item Guidance Introduction
The Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) is a group of standard data elements developed, tested, and
refined over two decades through a research and demonstration program funded primarily by the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), with additional funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the
New York State Department of Health. OASIS data elements were designed to enable systematic comparative
measurement of home health care patient outcomes at two points in time. Outcome measures are the basis for
outcome-based quality improvement (OBQI) efforts that home health agencies (HHAs) can employ to assess and
improve the quality of care they provide to patients. CMS provides HHAs with a) process quality, b) risk-adjusted
outcome, and c) potentially avoidable event reports. In addition, HHAs can access patient-related characteristic
reports and patient tally reports. Reports are provided for up to two time intervals selected by the HHA requesting the
reports. Process quality measures include indicators of how often the HHA follows best practices in assessment, care
planning, education, prevention and clinical intervention to improve patient outcomes. Outcome measures include
end-result functional and physical health improvement/stabilization, health care utilization measures (hospitalization
and emergency department use), and potentially avoidable events. Potentially avoidable events are negative
outcomes that clinical evidence indicates can be influenced (although not necessarily totally avoided) by following
best practices in providing care. In addition to quality measurement, OASIS data are used to adjust per-episode
payment rates for patient conditions that affect care needs.
Manual Overview
Chapter 1 The Introduction, which provides contextual information and other general information relevant
to OASIS data collection.
Chapter 2 Includes versions of the OASIS data set for each data collection time point. Chapter 3
Contains item-specific guidance, subdivided into sections.
Chapter 4 Contains partial sample clinical record forms for OASIS data collection time points.
Chapter 5 Includes relevant resources for HHAs, with hyperlinks when available.
Appendices Include additional contextual information, including sections on OBQI, home health care
regulations related to OASIS data collection, and recommendations for ensuring accuracy of
OASIS data.
Why is OASIS Being Revised Now?
HHAs began collecting and transmitting OASIS data for adult skilled Medicare and Medicaid patients (with the
exception of maternity patients) in 1999. Since 1999, numerous changes have occurred within the health care
system, including specific recommendations for changes in the area of home health care quality measurement.
Currently the main reason for revising OASIS is to increase standardization with assessment item sets for other post-
acute care (PAC) settings and to enable calculation of standardized, cross-setting quality measures, pursuant to the
provisions of the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014. There have been
additional minor updates to bring the Manual current for OASIS-C2 (See Appendix G Change Table).
What’s New?
This OASIS version incorporates three new items, modification to item wording, numbering or responses options in
several existing items, and formatting changes. Many item changes are the result of standardization to report
information that supports calculation of a cross-setting IMPACT quality measures. More detail is available in
Appendix G.
Collecting OASIS Data
Techniques for collecting OASIS data have not changed. This section will provide a basic overview for collecting
OASIS data. For more detail on clinical strategies for collecting OASIS data as part of a comprehensive assessment,
refer to Chapter 3 of this manual.
Chapter 1 OASIS Item Guidance Introduction
OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual Chapter 1-2
Effective 1/1/2017
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Eligible Patients
OASIS data are collected for Medicare and Medicaid patients, 18 years and older, receiving skilled services, with the
exception of patients receiving services for pre- or postnatal conditions. Those receiving only personal care,
homemaker, or chore services are excluded since these are not considered skilled services.
Time Points
OASIS data are collected at the following time points:
Start of care
Resumption of care following inpatient facility stay
Recertification within the last five days of each 60-day recertification period
Other follow-up during the home health episode of care
Transfer to inpatient facility
Discharge from home care
Death at home
All of these assessments, with the exception of transfer to inpatient facility and death at home, require the clinician to
have an in-person encounter with the patient during a home visit. The transfer to an inpatient facility requires
collection of limited OASIS data (most of which may be obtained through a telephone call). Not all OASIS items are
completed at every assessment time point. Some items are completed only at start of care, some only at discharge.
The table of “Items to be Used at Specific Time Points” included at the beginning of the OASIS data set allows the
home health agency to integrate the necessary OASIS items at each time point into clinical documentation forms or
an electronic health record.
At the start of care time point, the comprehensive assessment should be completed within five days after the start of
care date. At the resumption of care, the comprehensive assessment must be completed within 48 hours of return
home after inpatient facility discharge. For the transfer to inpatient facility, discharge from home care, death at home,
and other follow-up, the assessments must be completed within 48 hours of becoming aware of the transfer,
discharge, death, or significant change in condition.
Who Completes OASIS?
As identified in (M0080) Discipline of Person Completing Assessment, the comprehensive assessment and OASIS
data collection should be conducted by a registered nurse (RN) or any of the therapies, including physical therapist
(PT), speech language pathologist/speech therapist (SLP/ST), or occupational therapist (OT). A licensed practical
nurse or licensed vocational nurse (LPN/LVN), physical therapy assistant (PTA), occupational therapy assistant
(OTA), medical social worker (MSW), or Aide may not complete OASIS assessments.
In cases involving nursing, the RN must complete the comprehensive assessment at SOC. Any discipline qualified to
perform assessmentsRN, PT, SLP, OTmay complete subsequent assessments. For a therapy-only case, the
therapist usually conducts the comprehensive assessment. It is acceptable for a PT or SLP to conduct and complete
the comprehensive assessment at SOC for a Medicare patient.
An OT may conduct and complete the assessment when the need for occupational therapy establishes program
eligibility. Note: Occupational therapy alone does not establish eligibility for the Medicare home health benefit at the
start of care; however, occupational therapy may establish eligibility under other programs, such as Medicaid. The
Medicare home health patient who is receiving services from multiple disciplines (for example, skilled nursing,
physical therapy, and occupational therapy) during the episode of care, can retain eligibility if, over time, occupational
therapy is the only remaining skilled discipline providing care. At that time, an OT can conduct OASIS assessments.
Multidisciplinary cases may have multiple points of discipline-specific discharge, though there is only one HHA
discharge, which must include completion of the OASIS discharge comprehensive assessment. Other non-OASIS
required documentation for recertification and discharge are specified in the Condition of Participation:

Effective 1/1/2017
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Comprehensive Assessment of Patients.

OASIS items were designed to be discipline-neutral and have been tested
and validated with clinicians from various disciplines.
Comprehensive Assessment and Plan of Care
OASIS data are collected as part of the comprehensive assessment required by the Medicare Conditions of
Participation (see Appendix A of this manual). OASIS is not intended to represent a comprehensive assessment in
and of itself. HHAs are expected to incorporate OASIS items into their comprehensive assessment documentation
and follow their own assessment policies and procedures. Agencies are free to rearrange OASIS item sequence in a
way that permits logical ordering within their own forms, as long as the actual item content, skip patterns, and OASIS
number remain the same. Like other comprehensive assessment documentation, OASIS data are collected using a
variety of strategies, including observation, interview, review of pertinent documentation (for example, hospital
discharge summaries) discussions with other healthcare providers where relevant (for example, phone calls to the
physician to verify diagnoses), and measurement (for example, intensity of pain). OASIS data should be collected at
each time point based on a unique patient assessment, not simply carried over from a previous assessment.
Comprehensive assessment data form the basis of the physician-ordered Plan of Care. Thus, there should be
congruency between documentation of findings from the comprehensive assessment and the Plan of Care. As
specified in the Medicare Conditions of Participation for Home Health (see link to the Conditions of Participation
above and in Chapter 5 of this manual), the Plan of Care should be updated to reflect revised care orders and current
diagnoses throughout the period the patient is receiving home health care services.
Process of Care Data Items
Process of care data items (process items) document whether certain evidence-based practices were implemented.
Process items collected at SOC/ROC document assessment and care planning interventions such as: a) whether the
patient was assessed to be at risk for certain conditions like pain, falls risk, or pressure ulcer risk, and b) whether
interventions to address the conditions were incorporated into the Plan of Care. These items refer to assessments
that were completed and orders included in the Plan of Care within the five-day SOC period or the two-day ROC
period.
Process items collected at transfer and discharge time points include documentation of interventions implemented as
part of patient care at the time of or since the most recent start of care or resumption of care (see example in Table
1). Specific instructions about review periods are included in item guidance for the relevant OASIS questions.
Process items collected at transfer and discharge may require a clinician to review documentation of care provided
during the home health episode in order to accurately complete the items. Note that this review must consider care
provided by all disciplines, and is not limited to care provided by the discipline of the clinician completing the OASIS
assessment. The review can be accomplished in several different ways. The care provider may find it necessary to
review clinical records, including the Plan of Care, updated orders, and visit notes. Alternatively, the agency may
elect to create a flowsheet with the appropriate parameters that are checked off on each visit. Review of the
flowsheet may provide the needed information, such that a review of the clinical record would be unnecessary.
Another strategy for agencies using electronic health records is to create a report template that could pull the needed
information from data fields incorporated into visit notes. Regardless of the technique that an agency chooses, the
process data items completed at transfer and discharge will require knowledge of patient symptoms, initial and
subsequent physician’s orders, and clinical interventions performed to address patient symptoms that were present at
the time of or since the most recent SOC/ROC assessment.
Conventions for Completing OASIS
Listed below are conventions, or general rules, that should be observed when completing OASIS. Item-specific
guidance is provided in Chapter 3. The OASIS Guidance is updated periodically to provide additional clarification

Chapter 1 OASIS Item Guidance Introduction
OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual Chapter 1-4

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
based on "Frequently Asked Questions" sent to CMS. (A link to Frequently Asked Questions is provided in Chapter
5). It may not be possible to address all of the situations that arise, due to the rare and unique nature of some of the
questions, and exceptions that may be encountered in clinical practice.
Each patient scenario, clinical status, social and environmental situation is unique, requiring professional/clinical
judgment and care coordination. In the event you cannot resolve your understanding of the OASIS questions, CMS
will continue to provide avenues to accept and respond to questions.
General OASIS Item Conventions
1. Understand the time period under consideration for each item. Report what is true on the day of assessment
unless a different time period has been indicated in the item or related guidance. Day of assessment is defined
as the 24 hours immediately preceding the home visit and the time spent by the clinician in the home.
2. For OASIS purposes, a quality episode must have a beginning (that is, an SOC or ROC assessment) and a
conclusion (that is, a Transfer or Discharge assessment) to be considered a complete care episode.
3. If the patient’s ability or status varies on the day of the assessment, report the patient’s “usual status” or what is
true greater than 50% of the assessment time frame, unless the item specifies differently.
4. Minimize the use of NA and Unknown responses.
5. Some items allow a dash response. A dash () value indicates that no information is available, and/or an item
could not be assessed. This most often occurs when the patient is unexpectedly transferred, discharged or dies
before assessment of the item could be completed. CMS expects dash use to be a rare occurrence.
6. Responses to items documenting a patient’s current status should be based on independent observation of the
patient’s condition and ability at the time of the assessment without referring back to prior assessments. Several
process items require documentation of prior care, at the time of or since the time of the most recent SOC or
ROC OASIS assessment. These instructions are included in item guidance for the relevant OASIS questions.
7. Combine observation, interview, and other relevant strategies to complete OASIS data items as needed (for
example, it is acceptable to review the hospital discharge summary to identify inpatient procedures and
diagnoses at Start of Care, or to examine the care notes to determine if a physician-ordered intervention was
implemented at Transfer or Discharge). However, when assessing physiologic or functional health status, direct
observation is the preferred strategy.
8. When an OASIS item refers to assistance, this means assistance from another person. Assistance is not limited
to physical contact and can include verbal cues and/or supervision.
9. Complete OASIS items accurately and comprehensively, and adhere to skip patterns.
10. Understand the definitions of words as used in the OASIS.
11. Follow rules included in the Item Specific Guidance (Chapter 3 of this manual).
12. Stay current with evolving CMS OASIS guidance updates. CMS may post updates to the guidance manual up to
twice per year, and releases OASIS Q&As quarterly.
13. Only one clinician may take responsibility for accurately completing a comprehensive assessment. However, for
selected items, collaboration is appropriate. These exceptions are noted in the item specific guidance.
14. The use of the term “specifically,” means scoring of the item should be limited to only the circumstances listed.
The use of “for example,” means the clinician may consider other relevant circumstances or attributes when
scoring the item.
Chapter 1 OASIS Item Guidance Introduction
OASIS-C2 Guidance Manual Chapter 1-5
Effective 1/1/2017
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Conventions Specific to ADL/IADL Items
1. Report the patient’s physical and cognitive ability to perform a task. Do not report on the patient’s preference or
willingness to perform a specified task.
2. The level of ability refers to the level of assistance (if any) that the patient requires to safely complete a specified
task.
3. While the presence or absence of a caregiver may impact the way a patient carries out an activity, it does not
impact the assessing clinician’s ability to assess the patient in order to determine and report the level of
assistance that the patient requires to safely complete a task.
4. Understand what tasks are included and excluded in each item and select the OASIS response based only on
included tasks.
5. If the patient’s ability varies between the different tasks included in a multi-task item, report what is true in a
majority of the included tasks, giving more weight to tasks that are more frequently performed.
6. Consider medical restrictions when determining ability. For example, if the physician has ordered activity
restrictions, consider this when selecting the best response to functional items related to ambulation, transferring,
bathing, etc.
OASIS Data Accuracy
In any data-driven system, the quality of the output is only as good as the quality of the data input. OASIS data are
used to produce quality reports for agencies, public reports on the Medicare Home Health Compare website, and to
determine payment. Thus, it is imperative that the OASIS data that HHAs collect and submit be accurate and
complete. Regulatory language specifying accuracy of OASIS data can be found in the Medicare Conditions of
Participation Accuracy of Encoded OASIS Data
2
(For additional discussion of OASIS Data Accuracy, see Appendix B
of this manual.)
CMS recommends that agencies develop internal systems for monitoring data accuracy in addition to data checking
features incorporated into CMS-supplied data entry software and other data entry systems. These may include
clinical record audits, data entry audits, reports produced from electronic health record systems or other activities.
HHAs can correct nearly all erroneous assessments themselves following professional standards for correcting
documents. Information related to correction of erroneous OASIS data can be found in Appendix B of this manual.
OASIS Data Encoding and Transmission
HHAs are required to encode and electronically submit OASIS data to CMS within 30 days of the date the
assessment was completed. The requirements are specified in the Medicare Conditions of Participation
3
Encoding
OASIS Data, Transmittal of OASIS Data, and Data Format, summarized in Appendix E of this manual. Detailed
instructions on encoding and transmitting OASIS data are found in the HHA System User's Guide and the OASIS
Validation Report Messages and Description Guide (both available at QIES Technical Support Office OASIS User
Guides and Training).

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services OASIS-C2 Item Set-Effective 1/1/17 Page 6 of 27
(M1021/1023/1025) Diagnoses, Symptom Control, and Optional Diagnoses: List each diagnosis for which the
patient is receiving home care in Column 1, and enter its ICD-10-CM code at the level of highest specificity in Column 2
(diagnosis codes only - no surgical or procedure codes allowed). Diagnoses are listed in the order that best reflects the
seriousness of each condition and supports the disciplines and services provided. Rate the degree of symptom control
for each condition in Column 2. ICD-10-CM sequencing requirements must be followed if multiple coding is indicated for
any diagnoses. If a Z-code is reported in Column 2 in place of a diagnosis that is no longer active (a resolved
condition), then optional item M1025 (Optional Diagnoses - Columns 3 and 4) may be completed. Diagnoses reported
in M1025 will not impact payment.
Code each row according to the following directions for each column:
Column 1: Enter the description of the diagnosis. Sequencing of diagnoses should reflect the seriousness of each
condition and support the disciplines and services provided.
Column 2: Enter the ICD-10-CM code for the condition described in Column 1 - no surgical or procedure codes
allowed. Codes must be entered at the level of highest specificity and ICD-10-CM coding rules and
sequencing requirements must be followed. Note that external cause codes (ICD-10-CM codes beginning
with V, W, X, or Y) may not be reported in M1021 (Primary Diagnosis) but may be reported in M1023
(Secondary Diagnoses). Also note that when a Z-code is reported in Column 2, the code for the
underlying condition can often be entered in Column 2, as long as it is an active on-going condition
impacting home health care.
Rate the degree of symptom control for the condition listed in Column 1. Do not assign a symptom control
rating if the diagnosis code is a V, W, X, Y or Z-code. Choose one value that represents the degree of
symptom control appropriate for each diagnosis using the following scale:
0 - Asymptomatic, no treatment needed at this time
1 - Symptoms well controlled with current therapy
2 - Symptoms controlled with difficulty, affecting daily functioning; patient needs ongoing monitoring
3 - Symptoms poorly controlled; patient needs frequent adjustment in treatment and dose monitoring
4 - Symptoms poorly controlled; history of re-hospitalizations
Note that the rating for symptom control in Column 2 should not be used to determine the sequencing of
the diagnoses listed in Column 1. These are separate items and sequencing may not coincide.
Column 3: (OPTIONAL) There is no requirement that HHAs enter a diagnosis code in M1025 (Columns 3 and 4).
Diagnoses reported in M1025 will not impact payment.
Agencies may choose to report an underlying condition in M1025 (Columns 3 and 4) when:
a Z-code is reported in Column 2 AND
the underlying condition for the Z-code in Column 2 is a resolved condition . An example of a
resolved condition is uterine cancer that is no longer being treated following a hysterectomy.
Column 4: (OPTIONAL) If a Z-code is reported in M1021/M1023 (Column 2) and the agency chooses to report a
resolved underlying condition that requires multiple diagnosis codes under ICD-10-CM coding guidelines,
enter the diagnosis descriptions and the ICD-10-CM codes in the same row in Columns 3 and 4. For
example, if the resolved condition is a manifestation code, record the diagnosis description and ICD-10-
CM code for the underlying condition in Column 3 of that row and the diagnosis description and ICD-10-
CM code for the manifestation in Column 4 of that row. Otherwise, leave Column 4 blank in that row.

(M1021/1023/1025) Diagnoses, Symptom Control, and Optional Diagnoses: List each diagnosis for which the patient
is receiving home care in Column 1, and enter its ICD-10-CM code at the level of highest specificity in Column 2
(diagnosis codes only - no surgical or procedure codes allowed). Diagnoses are listed in the order that best reflects the
seriousness of each condition and supports the disciplines and services provided. Rate the degree of symptom control for
each condition in Column 2. ICD-10-CM sequencing requirements must be followed if multiple coding is indicated for any
diagnoses. If a Z-code is reported in Column 2 in place of a diagnosis that is no longer active (a resolved condition), then
optional item M1025 (Optional Diagnoses - Columns 3 and 4) may be completed. Diagnoses reported in M1025 will not
impact payment.
Code each row according to the following directions for each column:
Column 1: Enter the description of the diagnosis. Sequencing of diagnoses should reflect the seriousness of each
condition and support the disciplines and services provided.
Column 2: Enter the ICD-10-CM code for the condition described in Column 1 - no surgical or procedure codes
allowed. Codes must be entered at the level of highest specificity and ICD-10-CM coding rules and
sequencing requirements must be followed. Note that external cause codes (ICD-10-CM codes beginning
with V, W, X, or Y) may not be reported in M1021 (Primary Diagnosis) but may be reported in M1023
(Secondary Diagnoses). Also note that when a Z-code is reported in Column 2, the code for the underlying
condition can often be entered in Column 2, as long as it is an active on-going condition impacting home
health care.
Rate the degree of symptom control for the condition listed in Column 1. Do not assign a symptom control
rating if the diagnosis code is a V, W, X, Y or Z-code. Choose one value that represents the degree of
symptom control appropriate for each diagnosis using the following scale:
0 - Asymptomatic, no treatment needed at this time
1 - Symptoms well controlled with current therapy
2 - Symptoms controlled with difficulty, affecting daily functioning; patient needs ongoing monitoring
3 - Symptoms poorly controlled; patient needs frequent adjustment in treatment and dose monitoring
4 - Symptoms poorly controlled; history of re-hospitalizations
Note that the rating for symptom control in Column 2 should not be used to determine the sequencing of the
diagnoses listed in Column 1. These are separate items and sequencing may not coincide.
Column 3: (OPTIONAL) There is no requirement that HHAs enter a diagnosis code in M1025 (Columns 3 and 4).
Diagnoses reported in M1025 will not impact payment.
Agencies may choose to report an underlying condition in M1025 (Columns 3 and 4) when:
a Z-code is reported in Column 2 AND
the underlying condition for the Z-code in Column 2 is a resolved condition . An example of a
resolved condition is uterine cancer that is no longer being treated following a hysterectomy.
Column 4: (OPTIONAL) If a Z-code is reported in M1021/M1023 (Column 2) and the agency chooses to report a
resolved underlying condition that requires multiple diagnosis codes under ICD-10-CM coding guidelines,
enter the diagnosis descriptions and the ICD-10-CM codes in the same row in Columns 3 and 4. For
example, if the resolved condition is a manifestation code, record the diagnosis description and ICD-10-CM
code for the underlying condition in Column 3 of that row and the diagnosis description and ICD-10-CM code
for the manifestation in Column 4 of that row. Otherwise, leave Column 4 blank in that row.
