Accretive Health Provides Compliance Solutions in Light of New Regulations

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As new healthcare regulations are introduced across the country, Accretive Health (NYS: AH) is offering a newly developed, integrated suite of solutions that serve to prepare its healthcare clients in this new environment. Specifically, Accretive Physician Advisory Services (AccretivePAS®) responded to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) release of the FY 2014 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Final Rule by developing a range of physician advisor reviews to assist hospitals looking for compliance solutions.

"We specifically responded to the CMS ruling with the development of these new compliance solutions because there is much confusion across the industry about the new changes," said Steven Meyerson, M.D., senior vice president of the regulations and education group at AccretivePAS®. "We are already working with our hospital and physician clients to help clarify the intricacies of the new rule."

AccretivePAS® physician advisors comprehensively review the medical record and supporting documentation to determine their compliance recommendation. Reasons for the medical record review may range from needing to make patient admission assessments to billing recommendations.

"Accretive Health is proud to be at the forefront of providing seamless and efficient solutions for the industry," said Richard Kimball, chief strategy and growth officer at Accretive Health. "Our quick response to this new regulation is in line with our strategic objectives to prepare our clients for the ever-changing climate of U.S. healthcare."

All of the AccretivePAS® concurrent Medicare reviews are "status assured" -- that is, AccretivePAS® will defend its recommendations at no charge for the first two levels of appeal and have a small charge if an appeal goes to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) level.
