Improving Supplies Reimbursement

If your hospital or health system isn’t receiving all the reimbursement it legitimately should for medical/surgical supplies, it’s almost certainly because supply charges aren’t captured and billed correctly. The underlying cause is usually disparity among the purchasing, item master, OR, and billing systems – and the resulting lost or incorrect data leads to a loss of revenue in the supply chain.

Trisus® Supply solves these problems by performing an automated review of your systems to find irregularities where codable medical-surgical devices have been bought but don’t appear in the chargemaster, or appear with the wrong charge, quantity discrepancies, or coding compliance problems. After identifying these issues, Trisus Supply generates the reference data needed to fix errors and improve charge capture.

Aligning Data between Supply Chain, Operatory, and Revenue Cycle

Trisus Supply optimizes reimbursement for codable supplies with its ability to:

  • review new items daily with automated data uploads
  • identify purchased supplies missing from the chargemaster
  • correct missing or invalid coding information
  • identify gaps between the item master, OR files, and chargemaster

By eliminating the inconsistencies that invariably exist between a hospital or health system’s item master, chargemaster, and OR data sets, Trisus Supply helps ensure accurate pricing, coding, and billing of patient-chargeable supplies.
