  1. Hi, Can anyone tell me where I can find the final outcome measures that will be publicly reported for OASIS C? I have one publication that says ambulation will not be reported and another that says it will. I also here that there may be changes in the wound outcome area. Will improvement in status of surgical wounds still be a publicly reported outcome?

  2. I am trying to get some clarification on when to fill in M1024 if a v code is used in place of a case mix.
    It was my understanding that you would fill in M1024 if a v code was used in the primary spot for an acute or resoved condition or a DM, Nuero or Skin 1 code. You would not fill in M1024 for a v code in the primary spot if the condition was still active and going to be listed in the secodary spots, other than the DM, Nuero or Skin 1 code.
    Also what about v codes in the secondary spots, do we need to fill in M1024?
    Not sure this is the correct place to ask a question but my company asked this earlier today.
