The December Feature Pack will be released on Sunday, December 16th, 2018, during FocusChart’s routine Server Maintenance. Please refrain from logging into the Cloud from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm ET as any session opened during that time will be closed. The system will be available again promptly at 11:00 pm ET. Please take a quick peek below to review what is included within the release:
- OASIS D! The OASIS D items will be effective for all OASIS assessments with a M0090 date on or after 1/1/19. (Please keep in mind that if you create an assessment with a M0090 date prior to 1/1/19 and then edit the M0090 date to 1/1/19 or after, the initial creation of the assessment will contain OASIS Cardiac and OASIS POC Synopsis pages with narrative options. When the assessment is closed and reopened, the page listing will have refreshed and the pages will no longer be linked to the document).
- Physician Recertification Statements Removed – As of 1/1/19, the physician recertification statement will no longer require the physician to estimate how much longer skilled services will be needed.
- All end of year regulatory requirements including the updated HIPPS calculations and Grouper rates.
