Program Description

A new federal rule required each hospital to post its “standard charges” on the hospital’s website in a “machine readable” format. Given the broad scope of services provided by hospitals 24/7, a chargemaster contains thousands of services and charges. WHAIC has developed a user-friendly tool which would allow hospitals a systematic way to analyze these charges by offering a “drill down” type of functionality starting at the highest level which is “service line”, proceeding through MS-DRGs for the selected service line, to appropriate revenue groups within a selected MS-DRG, ultimately down to the individual charges making up that revenue group. Join us for this members-only webinar as we slice and dice to understanding your charges!
