RF Technologies Assists Healthcare Providers in Avoiding Preventable Injury Conditions to be Denied Reimbursement by Medicare
Date:4/9/2008

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandated that healthcare providers will not be eligible for reimbursement of expenses related to

preventable hospital injuries effective October 1, 2008

BROOKFIELD, Wis., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Technologies(R) announces that it is partnering with healthcare providers throughout the country to assist them in complying with new Medicare regulations that go into effect October 1, 2008. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has mandated that healthcare providers will not be eligible for reimbursement of expenses related to preventable hospital injuries. CMS will also bar providers from directly billing patients for expenses related to such injuries.

"Our knowledgeable experts are committed to providing solutions to help healthcare professionals comply with the directives of regulatory agencies, while providing the best possible care," said James Hermann, Vice President of Business Development at RF Technologies.

Among the hospital-acquired conditions that Medicare will withhold reimbursement for are bedsores or pressure ulcers and injuries caused by falls and infections. According to Centers for Disease and Prevention, each year more than one-third of U.S. adults aged 65 and older fall and each fall costs an average of $19,440.

With more than 20 years of industry experience, RF Technologies is sharing its vast knowledge to assist healthcare providers in addressing this new regulation, and mitigating the physical and financial risks.

Some of the solutions that RF Technologies has readily available to assist with avoiding preventable injuries include: Code Alert(R) Advanced 3-Way Care Solution; Safe Place(R) Hospital Security Solutions that integrate with Advanced 3-Way Care and include the Joint Commission reporting feature, which records an alert and the care administered to a patient, along with reports that document treatment; and Safe Place(R) Elopement Management Solution.
