Author information

The purposes of this article are to present a case study that demonstrates the use of OASIS data in evaluating a cardiac disease management program and to identify the problems encountered and the knowledge gained. It was found that OASIS data can be useful in the description of patients in disease management program development. The analysis of patient end-result outcomes (comparing start of care and discharge information) proved to be the greatest challenge. Recommendations for future studies are included.
