"Craneware’s Chargemaster Toolkit identified a $3.6 million revenue opportunity from 55 radiology charges that were priced below the Medicare APC."

- University Health Care System, Augusta, Georgia

Automate Chargemaster Management

Independent research confirms that 64% of hospitals use error-prone manual processes for chargemaster updates, and that nearly all only review the complete chargemaster with finance annually or after a specific event. Yet when a charge doesn’t exist in the chargemaster, there is ultimately no reimbursement – and chargemaster and charge capture errors lead to significant lost revenue and a risk of non-compliance.

Chargemaster Toolkit® – named by KLAS as #1 in the Revenue Cycle – Chargemaster Management market category twelve years in a row and an HFMA Peer Reviewed solution – addresses this issue with chargemaster management automation that helps eliminate variances in data and prevents revenue leakage. Chargemaster Toolkit is a flexible, easy-to-use solution that continually updates chargemaster data to ensure ongoing charge accuracy and consistency.

Optimize Drug Reimbursement

Ever-rising drug costs and ever-changing regulations likely make it difficult for your organization to receive proper reimbursement for the pharmaceuticals it administers, with the problem complicated by gaps in data moving between the systems that manage pharmacy purchases and patient billing. When pharmacy reimbursement codes are absent, incomplete, or incorrect, reimbursement will be denied, lowered, or delayed, and your hospital or health system may increase its compliance risk.

What’s missing in your hospital or health system’s reimbursement for drugs?

Pharmacy ChargeLink® solves these issues by ensuring that administered medications are accurately coded, billed, and reimbursed at an optimal level. By synching the drug purchase history and the chargemaster and addressing the gaps that cause revenue leakage, Pharmacy ChargeLink helps you identify revenue opportunities and create defensible pricing strategies. Its volume reconciliation tool compares the units purchased with the volume you’ve actually billed, to identify charge-capture problems and better manage potential compliance risks. Key features:

  • Pharmacy ChargeLink detects codable drugs that are missing from the chargemaster, and identifies problems with billing units and route of administration. It alerts you when Medicare payments may not cover costs and identifies drug charges that are misaligned with your pricing strategies.
  • Built-in workflow and change-management processes allow updates from pharmacy staff to be signed-off by reimbursement and pricing specialists. Recommended changes are integrated with the workflow approval process to increase efficiency and communication between pharmacy and finance staff.
  • Pharmacy ChargeLink connects to the Micromedex® RED BOOK™ database for information and pricing data on prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications. This enables your staff to perform alternative-drug searches, benchmark pricing, and generate spend analyses and statistical summaries.

Pharmacy ChargeLink Implementation

Craneware Professional Services provides an implementation service that delivers a quick return on investment and ongoing benefits from using the software with expert consultation, best practices and effective business process design. The engagement includes a review and analysis of the previous 12 months’ pharmacy purchase history and of the chargemaster’s pharmacy data, onsite training, strategic reporting, and more.

Establish Defensible, Competitive Pricing

Ensuring that prices not only cover costs, but are also defensible, transparent, and competitive, is an ongoing healthcare challenge. With reimbursements shrinking and more cost shifting to consumers, the ability to adapt quickly is essential to optimized pricing. Industry research reveals that 10 to 25 percent of a hospital or health system’s total business is charge-related, and that even a modest price increase can improve operating margin.

Pricing Analyzer™ simplifies and automates the price-modeling process, providing the speed and flexibility you need to adapt to dynamic market conditions. It helps your organization readily assess the potential impact of pricing and market changes, such as revenue shortfalls, while ensuring that pricing is transparent, defensible, and competitive.

Pricing Analysis for Transparent, Defensible and Competitive Pricing

To enable strategic pricing, Pricing Analyzer integrates data from disparate systems and automatically generates pricing models that factor in regulatory, reimbursement, cost, and market information. You’re then able to:

  • calculate payor mix and price sensitivity to assess the impact of changes
  • create and compare multiple pricing scenarios down to the service line, or aggregate to the facility
  • measure pricing against current industry benchmarks and competitors
  • evaluate and adjust pricing based on inflationary factors
  • provide complete documentation to key stakeholders and auditors

Charge capture analytics that identify risks to revenue and compliance

In today’s evolving healthcare climate, payment models continue to change from the traditional fee-for-service model to more blended payment methods causing risks to revenue and compliance. Regulatory and payment information changes constantly, and if your systems aren’t updated in a timely manner, claims can be filled with coding errors, missed charges, and compliance issues. All of these items can lead to lost revenue for your organization.

Trisus Claims Informatics, a retrospective charge capture analytical tool, identifies high-impact areas of risk for your team to investigate. This solution was created with the user in mind, based on customer feedback and requirements, and combined with analysis of over 200 million billed claims. By importing both claims and remit data sets from your patient accounting system, Trisus Claims Informatics uses prescriptive analytics on your own data resulting in higher accuracy of issues found. You can also see the potential gross impact of an issue, giving you quantitative data on potential revenue loss.

Trisus Claims Informatics helps you identify these risks through:

  • Drill-down dashboards to quickly identify high-impact issues
  • Root-cause analysis wizard which walks the user through the steps of auditing to correct the issue at the source
  • Issue grid that is easily sorted, grouped, and filtered
  • Potential gross impact identifying potential revenue loss
  • Actual impact to display actual revenue loss after remittance

This robust tool is built on our next-generation cloud-based platform, Trisus, allowing for daily imports of your claim and remit data, as well as frequent updates from Craneware to quickly adapt to industry and regulatory changes. These features, combined with the most accurate and current reference data in the industry, ensure your team’s success with post-bill audits.

During implementation, our consultants, who have a passion for revenue integrity, visit your organization on-site and perform a sample audit to identify your top five high-impact issues. Our consultant works with your team to audit, discuss corrective action plan development, and how to implement the plans. Our methodology includes training, workflow development, customized rules, and report creation, positioning your team for success.

Today’s Healthcare Challenges

In a world of uncertain reimbursement models and the never ending rise in healthcare costs, we can no longer solely rely on revenue management. In any industry, successful organizations are those that know their true costs and control them. Craneware is proud to announce the development of Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence which integrates financial, clinical, and operational data at the patient registration level to provide insight into true costs. This game-changing approach to activity-based costing introduces manufacturing cost management techniques into healthcare, which will revolutionize the healthcare industry.

As the healthcare industry moves away from a fee-for-service model and heads toward a value-based approach, outcomes are increasingly evaluated on both cost and quality of care. The importance of understanding cost across the hospital, department, and medical condition is essential to detecting possibilities for cost saving opportunities. Traditionally, healthcare IT systems have relied on estimations of costs and other surrogate markers to approximate the cost against revenue streams such as DRGs. This has led to a poor understanding of whether revenue covers costs by medical condition. When negotiating with payors, providers are at a significant disadvantage by not knowing their true costs.

Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence levels that playing field. Those providers that fail to implement a true cost analytics solution are at a competitive disadvantage compared to those that have, resulting in lost market share from poor strategic and process improvement decisions. Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence sheds light on how individual process variations made by physicians produce different profit margins by medical condition. The power of the tool comes from the ability to use these insights to drive clinical process improvements that not only maximize clinical outcomes, but also financial outcomes.

Analytics You Can Trust

Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence is a cost analytics decision support tool that integrates revenue, cost, clinical, and hospital operational information for each patient encounter, throughout the journey of their medical condition, accumulating all patient costs from patient activities and services consumed during their care.

Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence is patient-centric and provides information at a patient level that facilitates the aggregation of cost, revenue, and P/L by hospital service, DRG, and physician. Overall, it provides data for service line analytics and gives the ability to view physician practice variability. The solution also facilitates the benchmarking of services across multiple dimensions (hospital, physician specialty, cost center, physician, DRG, etc.).

Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence generates custom visualizations. Visualizations are dynamic, interactive reports that change with each user-applied selector. As users continue to refine their search criteria, visualizations actively change on screen to display the changing effect of the selections.

As a result, Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence empowers your organization to perform your own analysis and implement clinical and operational decisions through the use of the solution’s data discovery tools.

The Value Proposition of Trisus® Healthcare Intelligence

  • True Patient Cost – Understanding the true cost of care in order to determine the profitability by individual patient or by medical condition. It provides the visibility of total cost by specialty, physician, or registration number.
  • Contract Management – Negotiating fee-for-service contracts and supporting the development of bundled payment strategies.
  • Resource Consumption – A horizontal cost tracking analysis that exposes resource consumption and specific cost information by medical condition or DRG, physician, or service line.
  • Physician Variability – The necessary tools to expose variations in individual care practices or variations in care at the sub-specialty level across hospitals within a system.
  • Hospital Services Analysis – Activity and cost information for each individual service center (radiology, cath lab, OR, etc.), linking it with the horizontal perspective of service line (medical condition).
  • Process Improvement – Initiation of activities and projects to improve performances in an actionable and measureable way.
  • Data Discovery – In-depth data discovery metrics to be quickly exported in both reporting and presentation formats.
  • Cultural Change – Promoting conversation regarding utilization of hospital resource regarding patient care, which triggers changes in operational processes and ultimately promotes more efficient physician behavior.

Improving Supplies Reimbursement

If your hospital or health system isn’t receiving all the reimbursement it legitimately should for medical/surgical supplies, it’s almost certainly because supply charges aren’t captured and billed correctly. The underlying cause is usually disparity among the purchasing, item master, OR, and billing systems – and the resulting lost or incorrect data leads to a loss of revenue in the supply chain.

Trisus® Supply solves these problems by performing an automated review of your systems to find irregularities where codable medical-surgical devices have been bought but don’t appear in the chargemaster, or appear with the wrong charge, quantity discrepancies, or coding compliance problems. After identifying these issues, Trisus Supply generates the reference data needed to fix errors and improve charge capture.

Aligning Data between Supply Chain, Operatory, and Revenue Cycle

Trisus Supply optimizes reimbursement for codable supplies with its ability to:

  • review new items daily with automated data uploads
  • identify purchased supplies missing from the chargemaster
  • correct missing or invalid coding information
  • identify gaps between the item master, OR files, and chargemaster

By eliminating the inconsistencies that invariably exist between a hospital or health system’s item master, chargemaster, and OR data sets, Trisus Supply helps ensure accurate pricing, coding, and billing of patient-chargeable supplies.

Trisus Supply Implementation

Craneware Professional Services provides an implementation service for Trisus Supply that ensures a quick return on investment and ongoing benefits with expert consultation and effective business process design.

Automate Chargemaster Management

Independent research confirms that 64% of hospitals use error-prone manual processes for chargemaster updates, and that nearly all only review the complete chargemaster with finance annually or after a specific event. Yet when a charge doesn’t exist in the chargemaster, there is ultimately no reimbursement – and chargemaster and charge capture errors lead to significant lost revenue and a risk of non-compliance.
