On January 1st, the OASIS-CR is going into effect. This will mean the addition of three new standardized items (M1028, M1060, GG0170c), along with modification to select medication and integumentary items. This is being done in an effort to standardize with other post-acute settings of care (M1311, M1313, M2001, M2003, and M2005).
Earlier this year CMS added new quality measures to determine a nursing home's 5-star rating on the Nursing Home Compare section of Medicare.gov. These new measures are based on Medicare claims data and the minimum data set (MDS), and include statistics such as rehospitilization rate and emergency room use.
