Chicago, IL, September 13, 2011
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has extended its exclusive endorsement of Executive Health Resources, Inc.'s (EHR) Clinical Denials Management and Medical Necessity Compliance Solutions Services. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that are instrumental in helping member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. Following a comprehensive market assessment and an extensive re-evaluation of EHR's clinical compliance accountability solutions, the AHA is proud to re-endorse EHR's Clinical Denials Management and Medical Necessity Compliance Solutions Services.
Hospital compliance programs are under increased scrutiny by a host of government contractors with respect to Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) and other Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) policies as they relate to medical necessity. EHR provides best-in-class operational, technological and clinical resources that are instrumental in helping hospitals ensure regulatory compliance.
"After a thorough market assessment, AHA Solutions salutes EHR's continued commitment to hospitals. EHR has successfully performed more than three million medical necessity reviews, conducted hundreds of audits at hospital facilities, and identified and reversed thousands of inappropriate medical necessity denials," said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions. "EHR delivers medical necessity compliance solutions with its regulatory team of more than 600 expert Physician Advisors, who are specially trained in Medicare and Medicaid rules and regulation, attesting to its strength and market-leading position in medical necessity compliance."
"EHR is honored to continue our long-standing strategic relationship with the American Hospital Association," said Robert Corrato, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Executive Health Resources, Inc. "The need for medical necessity compliance in health care has never been more critical than it is now. EHR is proud to work with AHA Solutions to help educate hospitals on achieving a proactive compliant certification process and to ensure compliance with all regulatory requirements. EHR physicians work every day at the point-of-care with attending hospital physicians, on a doctor-to-doctor level, to achieve compliance, appropriately decrease denials and improve the patient care process."
