New Orleans, LA, June 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The deadline for sending Hospice Item Set (HIS) information is just around the corner. Effective July 1st, 2014, Medicare-certified hospices must submit a Hospice Item Set (HIS) Admission record and an HIS Discharge record for each patient admission. These HIS records will be submitted to the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES) Assessment Submission and Processing (ASAP) system. With mumms® Software, every customer can submit the required HIS data. mumms® Software will be updated to pull a report that contains the required HIS information. Following CMS instructions, each hospice will be able to upload the HIS report directly into the CMS Web App. It's that easy.
"As always, our goal is to make the process of collecting, reporting, and sending data as effortless as possible," said mumms® CEO Leo Radosta. mumms® will be hosting online training webinars and provide online training videos for customers in the coming weeks. “We never want mumms® customers worrying about CMS Regulations, so we will make it as easy as possible for all of our hospices to be compliant with CMS and all other regulatory bodies."
