ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(HealthPort®, a leader in the compliant exchange of protected health information today announced the addition of HIHPro™, designed to deliver government audit requests electronically to auditors via Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD).)--
“In 2012, more than $6 billion were targeted for audits, it was a natural fit to utilize HealthPort Connex™ our vast distribution network that includes direct RAC connections as well as esMD and our audit management technology to help our members’ facilities protect revenue and reduce turnaround times”
Electronic delivery with HIHPro reduces costs through fast, secure electronic submissions and streamlines workflow with electronic delivery of receipt confirmations. Decreasing turnaround times and virtually eliminating technical denials is now a reality by delivering audit requests directly to CMS’s esMD portal in hours, rather than days with paper delivery. Automatic tracking and delivery confirmation combine to create a seamless workflow for integrated audit management – providing additional time for overall facility project planning.
