HAMDEN, Conn., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospice organizations may not realize they are losing thousands of dollars in monthly revenue due to errors and delays with the Notice of Election (NOE) process. But this common concern has many hospice providers spending excessive hours on data entry/re-entry, follow-up and appeals diligence, when NOE Tracker could be maximizing efficiency and helping to avoid penalties.
NOE Tracker is a first-of-its-kind software that validates data to address the fact that 50 percent of hospice entries into the Medicare Direct Data Entry (DDE) system to verify hospice eligibility and check claim status will be penalized as the result of a processing delay.
David J. Berman, Principal at Simione Healthcare Consultants, said, "The partnership between Simione and MEDTranDirect serves to help hospice organizations realize their revenue recovery potential, implement best practices in revenue cycle, and enhance the bottom line to preserve their mission to serve patients and families. NOE Tracker helps hospice organizations understand the extent of the problem and offers a fast and easy solution."
According to Ellie Robison, CEO of MEDTranDirect, NOE Tracker offers a unique approach to hospice revenue recovery. "We have worked to improve the process so that hospice organizations can minimize the daily manual work and research efforts using DDE for every patient, and spend more time on activities that support patient care. We want hospice leaders to have more peace of mind that their organizations' hard work will be compensated fairly to ensure their continued viability to serve their communities," she explained.
