Eric Goodman passsed the certification examination, thus earning the Home Care Clinical Specialist-OASIS (HCS-O) credential examination administered by the Board of Medical Specialty Coding (BMSC):  http://www.medicalspecialtycoding.com/homehealth.aspx

Now, I am one of few to hold both certifications for Oasis; COS-C and HCS-O. This is a huge accomplishment and will allow me to further extended the WOC Nursing profession into process, outcome, and payment areas of home health.

Eric Goodman has successfully completed the Certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical exam and may now use

the COS-C designation.

To achieve the COS-C designation, sponsored by OASIS Answers, Inc. (OAI), an individual must

successfully complete a 100-item, two and one half hour exam. Since its inception in late 2004,

over 13,000 candidates have taken the COS-C exam looking to demonstrate their OASIS

competency. This exam is the only nationally standardized, psychometrically validated test that

strictly evaluates a clinician's knowledge of CMS' OASIS guidelines.
