RAC TRACKer PRO
Whether it’s the RAC, the MAC, the MIC or any other 3rd party audit review, TRACKer™Pro will guide the way.
To meet the growing need of health care providers to manage external auditing of health care claims, the Ohio Hospital Association has teamed up with GNYHA Ventures, Inc.* and its technology partner Bluemark to offer TRACKerTM PRO, a dynamic Web-based method to effectively manage the time-sensitive and complex workflow and documentation requirements needed to satisfy third-party payer audit activity. Initially designed to manage audits resulting from Medicare’s Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) demonstration program that began in 2005, TRACKerTM PRO was expanded to handle audits from Medicare fee-for-service contractors, Medicaid, and other third-party insurers.
TRACKerTM PRO is used by over 300 providers nationwide including a larger number of Ohio facilities to manage audit record requests, process determination letters, image documentation, navigate the multi-tiered rebuttal and appeal process, and report on all process and financial activity associated with these audits.
