The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) adopted a rule in 2009 that required covered entities (health plans, health care providers, and health care clearinghouses) that conduct electronic Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act standard transactions to move from ICD-9 to the next generation ICD-10 code sets by October 1, 2013.
Veterans Health Administration Consolidated Patient Account Center (CPAC) Program Workforce Development (WFD)
CPAC sought Altarum to initiate a WFD Training Needs Analysis to perform a comprehensive assessment of current CPAC WFD performance, identify gaps in services, and provide recommendations based on industry best practices to improve overall program effectiveness.
In collaboration with the Defense Manpower Data Center, Altarum launched a data quality improvement initiative to progressively analyze Defense Health Agency data for inaccuracy and duplication to create a more accurate Standard Insurance Table (SIT).
The number of Veterans who require assistance to live independently and achieve gainful employment is expected to increase exponentially over the coming years.
Recent changes in federal regulations meant that more than 200,000 Veterans became eligible for health care services through the Veterans Health Administration, which serves some 8 million of the country’s 23 million Veterans. The Veterans Health Administration contracted Altarum to develop and implement a marketing and communications strategy to reach these Veterans, providing information and encouraging them to apply for enrollment in VA.
