Point-in-time solution provides real-time tracking of healthcare coverage changes
Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today launched the Health Coverage Change Analyzer, a first-of-its-kind healthcare local and national coverage solution designed to accelerate healthcare reimbursement research by tracking real-time changes in health coverage over time. Available on Wolters Kluwer’s MediRegs and Cheetah™ platforms, this solution allows for increased efficiency and accuracy while monitoring evolving regulatory coverage changes.
Within seconds, users can visually analyze changes to Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs), National Coverage Determinations (NCDs) and Coverage Articles dating back to the inception of ICD-10. Deleted text is redlined, and added text is highlighted in green. The Health Coverage Change Analyzer features point-in-time functionality, allowing healthcare reimbursement professionals, at all experience levels, to quickly audit and understand these changes.
“Healthcare coverage is ever-changing, and professionals must stay informed of these updates in order to best serve their clients,” said Maria Bounos, Practice Lead Coding & Reimbursement Solutions at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “The Health Coverage Change Analyzer provides healthcare reimbursement professionals and attorneys with the ability to quickly identify, audit and research coverage changes over time, allowing an increase in accuracy while saving them significant time.”
The Health Coverage Change Analyzer offers users a variety of features including:
- Point-in-time functionality for analyzing LCDs, NCDs and Coverage Articles;
- Simple to click through, search or use the calendar to navigate changes; and
- Embed links into customer content or print redlined changes.
Wolters Kluwer is the leading provider of information, business intelligence, and regulatory workflow and compliance solutions for the healthcare industry. Last month, the company also launched Health Regulatory Change Analyzer, which will allow users to monitor and understand changes to U.S. Federal Regulations and Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Manuals.
