Understanding the Inpatient Prospective Payment System can be quite a challenge (see below for key references!), but MediRegs subscribers can know right now with our MS-DRG electronic codebook, MS-DRG Grouper, and MS-DRG Calculator. We’ve recently released a significantly improved provider-specific MS-DRG calculator, powered by New Health Analytics. This calculator demonstrates MS-DRG payments under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System and includes the following enhancements:
- Modernized look and feel with easier "look-up" features
- MS-DRG and/or MDC "look-up" by keyword search • Calendar "look-up"
- Provider "look-up" by name
- Export reports to PDF and Excel
- Bookmark to save your favorite searches
- Compare and show provider-specific payment for a given MS-DRG over time
In about 2 minutes, you can create a custom list of the MS-DRGs that matter to you, configure for your date and provider information, and generate an outstanding excel report that gives you a provider-specific inpatient reimbursement report that would take hours to generate on your own. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this new resource, please sign up for a free payment tools training session today!
