Bluemark,LLC has achieved the notable status of Health Information Handler (HIH) as recognized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) joining a select group of technology companies with the capability to participate in the Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD). Phase 1 of the esMD program gives health care entities the option to send requested medical documentation electronically to a Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) or other Review Contractor providing significant cost savings in labor and paper costs. In Phase 2 of the program which will be implemented at a future date, providers will be able to receive electronic documentation requests through this infrastructure completing the cycle for a paperless process.
This achievement of the HIH status by Bluemark is another milestone reached in the development of our TRACKer™ audit technology service. Previous recognition by the AHA as a RACTrac approved vendor and integration with Executive Health Resources (EHR) for denial and appeal outsourcing distinctly sets the TRACKer™ application apart as the premier audit software solution.
