New Brightree Tool Supports HME Industry Efforts to Collect Data on Medicare Audits
The American Association of Homecare highlights new tool exclusively for Brightree users to help with the quarterly HME Audit Key Survey
WASHINGTON, DC – April 27, 2017 – Home medical equipment (HME) suppliers who use Brightree software now have access to a new tool that will make it easier to participate in industry efforts to collect data on Medicare audits. This tool pulls together much of the data sought for the quarterly HME Audit Key Survey, an initiative supporting industry efforts to advocate on Capitol Hill and at CMS for much-needed audit reform. The current data collection round, covering information from the 1st Quarter of 2017, opened earlier this month.
Brightree customers now have the option of printing a report from their My Files folder to answer many of the operational questions on the quarterly survey. Details on using the Brightree report can be found at www.aahomecare.org in the HME Audit Key resources section.
“We truly appreciate Brightree lending their support and expertise to the HME Audit Key effort,” said Tom Ryan, president & CEO of the American Association for Homecare. “Their new reporting tool will make it easier for more companies to participate in our quarterly surveys and collect data on the burdensome nature of Medicare audits that CMS and Congress can’t ignore.”
