OASIS C-1 on the way … and with ICD-10

Thanks to HCLA for letting us know a little about what was said at the recent NAHC conference in Washington DC.
A CMS representative said a new OASIS … C-1 … is in the works.
Pat Sevast of CMS said the revisions are centered about the switch to ICD-10 coding.
While CMS has announced a delay to the implementation of ICD-10, “we are proceeding as if ICD-10 is going to be implemented Oct. 1, 2013,” she said. That’s because CMS’s delay for the new coding set won’t be official until it finishes rulemaking.
