External audits can originate from many sources ranging from state health departments to state Medicaid agencies, CMS contractors, and state fraud agencies. Such audits can have unfavorable outcomes if the provider in question hasn’t complied with regulations or abided by industry standards.
Our home health and hospice consulting services can challenge external audit results based on many factors ranging from how audits are done to other procedural requirements/guidelines. We can also challenge evidence and defend providers from unfair audits.
External audits have preparation and response guidelines. We help providers familiarize themselves with industry positions and guidelines on external audit issues. We can also track audits, outcomes, perform routine monitoring, and handle corrective actions.

Most importantly, we can control risks associated with malware, ransomware, and similar attacks on the information technology systems of home health facilities and hospices.
Our home health and hospice consulting services also include digital forensics consulting. Our experts can obtain electronically stored data containing evidence that may be overlooked and result in failed investigations.
