As you have learned, the shift to electronic can bring, perhaps a new word, interoperability, or a new process that you no longer want to manage through a staff person who may move on and take what they know with them. This not only leaves a knowledge gap within the ordinary workflow, but what you do not know may cost you money. Be it fines, the cost of a rolling out a plan of correction, or unrealized opportunities in the pay-for-performance arena having an expert manage pieces of the business may be worth considering. Additionally, becoming a member in national or regional organizations can provide insight as to what others are doing, or the lessons they learned.

We are a member of the National Quality Forum (NQF), as a paid member you see the high level links that are a part of your membership. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Congress, and the Administration turn to NQF to take on complex and pressing healthcare issues that impact tens of millions of Americans. Something to consider!

  • Tax ID Number (TIN)
  • NPI (individual or all in the group)
  • Medicare PECOS PAC ID (numbers of members in the group)
  • PECOS Enrollment ID

It’s handy to have the Provider Enumeration Date and the last Update. As a member, you have access to an EXCEL workbook, ASK Us!
