Starting from January 2025, the Discharge Function score will replace the Total Normalized Composite scores in Value-Based Purchasing to measure functional outcomes. Join us to learn about how the Discharge Function score is calculated and ways to improve your functional outcomes, resulting in better OASIS outcome scores. Statistics show that patients with better functional outcomes will have increased opportunities to remain independent at home. Statistics also show that agencies struggle with responding to the GG items accurately. Learn how to measure functional outcomes accurately and initiate effective interventions to improve function.  


  1. Discuss the differences between the Discharge Function score and the Total Normal Composite score.
  2. Identify OASIS items impacting the Discharge Function score.
  3. Discuss strategies for 2024 to impact performance in 2025.
