Suppose you've received 64 pages of data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that could save your facility hundreds of thousands of dollars in recoupments, possible fines and sanctions but only if you could make sense of it. Suppose, too, that as you struggle so hard to interpret the data you actually give up and call it quits.
Not surprising. It happens to you and countless other healthcare professionals every quarter when you receive the Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER). This Excel file summarizes provider-specific Medicare data statistics for target areas often associated with Medicare improper payments due to billing, DRG coding and/or admission necessity issues.
Fortunately, Ronald Hirsch, MD, will walk you through the PEPPER report to show you to determine if your facility is a risk of an audit and conversely, how your facility could realize potential revenue enhancement during this upcoming webcast.
Widely viewed, but seldom understood PEPPER can enhance your hospital's overall performance. During this important webcast you will learn how to interpret your PEPPER because Dr. Hirsch will…
- Analyze and assess key information in PEPPER
- Demonstrate how PEPPER is used to evaluate audit risk
- Construct processes to review PEPPER outlier measures
- Show how PEPPER can enhance revenue
