Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) - May 10, 2013 - Washington, DC

Industry-leading health business information publisher Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce the release of its newest special report, The Medicare Compliance Toolkit. This report, from the editors of AIS’s Report on Medicare Compliance, contains more than 40 sample forms, policies, procedures, decision trees and other practical tools that hospitals and health systems, group practices, health plans and other organizations can adapt to run a more effective compliance operation, covering everything from coding, billing, documentation and reimbursement to Recovery Audit Contractors and OIG audits.

The Medicare Compliance Toolkit is packed with field-tested tools — from top hospitals, health systems and consulting firms across the nation — including:

  • Tailored checklists for documenting and clarifying physicians’ findings on hot-button diagnoses such as malnutrition and major joint replacement.
  • Sample attestation forms and management logs to manage and mitigate conflicts of interest.
  • Guidance on complying with the Stark law, including a flow chart to determine which financial relationships the law applies to, an algorithm for calculating fair market value and sample leases.
  • Recommended elements of a hospital discharge summary.
  • An intake form for hospitals to use in reviewing proposed contracts with physicians and vendors.
  • A social media policy template.
  • Methods to assess compliance-program effectiveness.
