Designed for Collaboration Across Your Organization

Trisus Chargemaster users levels are designed to work the way you do, providing the necessary information and functionality needed and keeping the process simple.

Reference users, typically billers, coders, and CDM coordinators, need a fast and easy way to access accurate coding and regulatory data. The Reference profile provides comprehensive clinical, coding, financial, and regulatory reference data at the user’s fingertips.

Collaborate functionality offers clinical users, patient access, and revenue integrity, among others, to easily access change request workflows. Collaborate users can easily view the chargemaster, request new codes and code changes, and access reference data all without leaving the Trisus Chargemaster app. Change request workflow can be customized by department, making the request process even easier for users outside of the CDM management team.

Power users manage the CDM content as the main part of their daily responsibility. With this functionality, users have access to the full power of Trisus Chargemaster. Dashboards display CDM health, revenue opportunities, compliance issues, and more so the Power user can quickly determine areas of the CDM that need immediate attention. From managing the change request workflow to resolving CDM issues, the Power user has all the tools needed to manage and maintain a complete, correct, and compliant chargemaster.

“My team’s overall impression of Trisus Chargemaster has been great. This app is intuitive, a one-stop-shop where everything is in one place and the reference material is right in front of you. It really has been a very nice experience for our users.”

System Data Integrity Manager

Created to Manage Both Hospital and Professional Chargemasters

Trisus Chargemaster is designed to manage both Hospital and Professional chargemasters in a single application.

Trisus Chargemaster Hospital focuses on hospital changes, ensuring all billable services, supplies, and medications are coded and priced correctly to enhance revenue and reduce compliance risk.

Trisus Chargemaster Professional focuses on the physician chargemaster and fee schedule line items. This configuration audits physician line items including charges, codes, RVUs, fee schedules, and provides professional billing reference data.

Data Visibility

As more hospitals move to an enterprise data structure, revenue teams need a comprehensive view of charge data across the system. Trisus Chargemaster can be configured to fit your organization’s needs when it comes to visibility.

Discovery View provides a single, clear, concise view of all CDM data for multiple facilities, payors, and services lines. This view gives your team the ability to view and filter by location/service line, volume, cost center, revenue and usage, and fee schedules across the enterprise.

Corporate View standardizes and maintains files across disparate billing systems for those healthcare organizations that use multiple patient accounting systems. With a standard view you can ensure consistent, accurate pricing and coding for all chargemaster data.
