Being Thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, we are thankful for the opportunity to share our knowledge of Medicare hospital regulations with our clients and others who read our newsletter. We indeed have a lot of more meaningful things to be thankful for (family, friends, good health, etc.), but we also strive at our job to provide clear, concise and understandable guidance to hospitals. Hopefully this assists those who work in the hospitals to do their jobs more efficiently, and in the end positively impacts patient care, so that we are helping you help others.

In October of this year, we did a series of articles about the Medical Management Plus HIQUP Reports. The first of these articles gave a brief overview of what the HIQUP reports are and how they may benefit your hospital. Subsequent articles provided details of each of the HIQUP report attachments and tips on how to best utilize the reports as a compliance risk assessment tool for your hospital. At the suggestion of our readers, we have put all of the articles together as a Resource Guide for the HIQUP reports. You can find this guide at the HIQUP Report page on the MMP website (www.mmplusinc.com ).

From the HIQUP Resource Guide:

Medical Management Plus’s HIQUP suite of reports is an outpatient product that provides analysis of hospitals’ Medicare 835 remittances. HIQUP stands for Hospital Improvement in Quality and Performance. This resource guide examines in detail each report of the HIQUP suite of reports. For those of you who already use the reports, this may be a review, but may contain some additional information or tips on how to best utilize the reports to improve your processes to control risks, improve efficiencies and assure optimal reimbursement. If you are not familiar with the HIQUP reports, this will provide basic information on what this product may offer for your facility.

All of the articles from our Wednesday@One newsletter are available on our website. You can search for the articles by date of publication, category, title, or even keywords within the articles. Please feel free to share these articles with others inside and outside of your facility.

The website also describes the services we offer at Medical Management Plus. On the Classes tab, you may purchase replays of our live educational presentations and on-demand webinars. Check here often as we are currently in the process of populating this newest feature.

We wish all of our clients and readers a very Happy Thanksgiving! And we would like to express our thanks for the wonderful people with whom we work!
