Software maker Dream Software and VGM Group Inc., have joined to help
providers standardize prescription and documentation of HME medical
necessity as a safeguard against audits.
Offered to VGM members at a discount, Dream’s software incorporates
electronic prescription and automated documentation functionality that
helps providers process and document every patient identically and
consistently, which can benefit them in the case of audits. The software
requires that all supporting documentation be provided before delivery.
E-prescribing HME reduces physicians’ staff time by more than 65
percent, compared to paper.
The Dream system’s Medicare rules engine ensures that all coverage
criteria and supporting documentation are present. If one provider
passes an audit, then all providers pass because the software ensures
that all patients were processed identically.
“With everything that HME providers are facing, audits are an immediate
threat,” noted Ron Bendell, president of VGM & Associates, Ltd.
“CMS’s ‘bounty hunters’ have little regard for differentiating between
clerical errors and true fraudulent activity. Dream Software offers a
solution to help ensure that the i’s are dotted and the t’s are
“We are proud to be associated with VGM and applaud their dedication to their membership,” said Dream CEO Mickey Letson.
