Understanding New Section GG
in Preparation for OASIS-D

OVERVIEW

With the implementation of OASIS-D set for January 1, 2019, post acute providers need to begin preparing and executing plans to put the proposed changes in place. To help prepare you, this second webinar in our three-part series discusses the new section GG Functional Abilities and Goals. During this session, we’ll detail new OASIS-D items:

  • GG0100 Prior Functioning
  • GG0110 Prior Device Use
  • GG0130 Self Care

Attendees will learn what activities and equipment will be captured, receive scoring guidance, and compare new functional abilities and goals to the current M1900 item. The webinar will include an in-depth look at the activities measured in the GG0130 Self Care item and how new items relate to the ADL/IADL assessment. It will review the six-point performance scale, when to select the “not attempted” codes, and guidance for establishing patient goals.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand guidance, conventions, and response-specific instructions for new Section GG: Functional Abilities & Goals
  2. Compare GG: Functional Abilities with current M1800 ADL/IADL items
  3. Identify strategies for accurate assessment of new OASIS-D items
