CMS esMD Update focus of free OHA webinar

Posted on: 5/31/17


The Oklahoma Hospital Association invites members to an educational webinar on the CMS esMD electronic document submission program for audit response. This free, one-hour webinar will be at 2 p.m. CDT, Thursday, June 8.

A project from CMS – the Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation – offers new options to respond to requests for medical documentation and ultimately expedite the claims review process. The esMD system provides an electronic option to respond to additional documentation request letters and allows review contractors to electronically receive those responses. In fact, the RACs have stated on recent provider calls that esMD is the most efficient and effective way to get records to them for review.

The webinar will provide background on the esMD program, share key performance data and discuss CMS’ future expansion of the program. It will also provide a practical example of how the document submission process works.

The webinar will be presented in partnership with our solution partner, Bluemark, and will feature Bryan Exner, Bluemark’s chief operating officer and lead system architect. Bluemark is a leading provider of revenue cycle technology solutions and is the technology partner with OHA and the Greater New York Hospital Association on the TRACKER PRO audit management solution.
