VHCI's Revenue Recovery Service provides a comprehensive review and follow-up of zero-balance Medicare inpatient, Medicare outpatient and all third-party hospital claims to ensure that all expected payments are received. This service helps hospitals receive additional reimbursement with minimal effort from existing staff.

"The 'Peer Reviewed by HFMA' designation distinguishes Vaughan Holland Consulting, Inc. as a trusted source for revenue audit and recovery services."

HFMA's Peer Review process is designed to provide healthcare finance professionals with an objective third-party evaluation of products and services used in the healthcare finance workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process consists of a peer review panel that includes current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and expert HFMA Peer Review board members. Peer Review status approval of the product or service and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

"We're pleased to have VHCI renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation," says HFMA President and CEO Richard L. Clarke, DHA, FHFMA. "The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed product or service meets an objective third party evaluation that assesses overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
