VGM uses OmniSYS to fight audits

Thursday, April 17, 2014

WATERLOO, Iowa – A new deal will help VGM members respond to audits using OmniSYS solutions at a discounted rate, the companies announced April 17.

“Audits are the most critical problem facing our members today, and responding to them is time consuming and expensive,” said Ron Bendell, president of VGM and Associates, in a release. “VGM is happy to partner with a company that can handle the process from the initial notice up through the administrative law judge level, and do it in an economical way.”

OmniSys’s OmniGUARD is a Web-based interactive application that allows providers to upload audit demand letters and pre-pay denials. Audit specialists then collect medical necessity documentation, submit audit packages and monitor responses for providers.

The specialists also educate physicians and patients when paperwork fails to conform to guidelines, according to the release.

“OmniSYS’s Web-based compliance solutions are designed to take the burden off the supplier and manage the entire audit and documentation collection process, improving payment rates and increasing net cash flow,” said Tricia Fringer, OmniSYS president and CEO.
