The new service offering includes an in-depth evaluation of a hospital's current compliance and ability to meet the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's various quality reporting provisions, with particular focus on healthcare-acquired conditions, hospital readmissions and value-based purchasing. The assessment provides a customized quantification of financial risk based on data provided by the hospital.

"Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements already account for a major portion of the average hospital's revenues," commented Doug Thompson, MedeAnalytics' senior vice president, Performance Management Consulting. "In general, healthcare reform has linked CMS reimbursement levels to a hospital's compliance with quality reporting and performance requirements, which we believe increases the need for this type of thorough assessment."
