Cost Report Accuracy and Defensibility - An Imperative for Critical Access Hospitals

Traditionally, CAHs have relied on manual methods to meet the time study requirements, but these methods are often inaccurate, costly, and labor-intensive. CMS has accepted electronic time studies for years, but until recently few technologies could produce accurate and compliant results.

In a collaborative white paper, we analyzed data collected by VersaBadge’s automated time study technology and discuss the benefits that an electronic approach has for CAHs including:

Impact of time study accuracy on CAH reimbursement

More accurate and defensible data

Elimination of the effort associated with manual time studies

Using the data to provide useful insights above workflow and cost allocation

Automated ED Clinical Time Studies

The financial impact on a CAH that replaces their manual time study method with an electronic time study can be profound and could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars added to your annual Medicare reimbursement.
