HealthDataInsights launches new RAC Web site, posts issues eligible for audits

Recovery Auditor Report, August 20, 2009

HealthDataInsights, Inc. (HDI), launched its new RAC Web site, and posted the first set of issues eligible for RAC review throughout all 20 RAC Region D states and territories on August 12.
 
The list of issues will likely be familiar to healthcare providers who saw those announced by Connolly Healthcare last week.
 
With two RACs now focusing on the same issues, it seems prudent for providers everywhere to review these areas and try to correct any problems they uncover. Debbie Mackaman, RHIA, CHCO, regulatory specialist for HCPro, Inc, suggests meeting with various departments involved in each of the specific issues. Talk to rehab departments about untimed codes, talk to the pharmacy about Neulasta, and talk to the HIM department about what could be causing the coding problems related to newborn pediatrics, she says. And review documentation for IV hydration as well.
