Western Maryland Health System (Cumberland, Md.) and Pennsylvania-based Wellspan Health System and have selected King of Prussia, Pa.-based MRO to implement Audit Tracker Online to manage payer audits and denials from initial medical records request through appeals and payment resolution.

Under these agreements, Wellspan Health System, with more than 40 locations in Pennsylvania and Maryland and Western Maryland Health System, comprised of two hospitals and more than 200 physicians, will integrate Audit Tracker Online with their existing release-of-information software from MRO, the company says. In addition to tracking all aspects of audit processes, the health systems will be able to create detailed trend analyses, identifying steps that will allow them to enhance their claims processes and improve clinical and financial information in an effort to avoid future audits, it touts.
