Care Communications claims Audit Manager can help minimize RAC risks and costs by:

  • Detecting error patterns to avoid repeating mistakes;
  • Minimizing the need for additional staff;
  • Ensuring deadlines are met by using work lists and e-mail reminders;
  • Allowing authorized users to access documentation, appeals templates and other tools; and
