Create Your Own MEDICARE, MEDICAID,Home Health News Services With CCH

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 4, 2002) – Professionals who need to know about new developments in Medicare, Medicaid and Home Health now have timely, customized news with two new services: the Medicare & Medicaid Tracker™ and Home Health Tracker™ from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of health care law information and services. The two new Tracker services deliver daily customized news via the web or e-mail, keeping subscribers up-to-date on the hottest topics affecting your organization. (For more information or to order, call 1-800-449-9525.)

"It’s never been easier to stay informed about need-to-know developments," said CCH marketing manager Anne Geron. "Subscribers simply choose the kind of information they want. CCH then searches for it and delivers it to the customer’s desktop as it becomes available."

Customized to Customer Needs

Subscribers can tailor a personal "news feed" by choosing from a variety of news topics and select the news topics and types of documents they want to receive.

Once users have set their preferences, CCH then culls from its comprehensive daily coverage of new developments only the news and information subscribers want, and delivers it to them as it becomes available and in the format they choose. Subscribers even determine how much information about a selected topic they want to receive – headlines, summaries, or both.

With the CCH Tracker, subscribers set up searches once, and get results as often as they occur. They can view their Tracker over a specific time period: their Tracker archive will show them everything on any given topic they’ve chosen by a specific date, or over a select period of time.

Subscribers also can select all topics and receive the complete range of new developments reported by CCH, or just focus on a few. And, summaries of all source documents are available so users can make informed decisions about what to access. In addition, subscribers can enter their own terms that will be included in the Tracker searches.

  • Medicare and Medicaid Topics

Medicare and Medicaid topics include such things as HIPAA compliance, Billing, Coding, Cost Reports, Hospitals, Medicaid Eligibility and more – there are 26 topics in all.

Users can also specify the type of documents they wish to receive – such as cases, Federal Register, manuals, Laws and Regs and more.

  • Home Health Topics

Subscribers who want to keep on top of the latest Home Health Medicare & Medicaid payments can choose from a wide variety of Home Health news topics, from Compliance to Conditions of Participation to OASIS. Over 30 topics are available to select from. Then, you determine what type of documents you want to receive – for example, court cases, DAB decisions or OIG/GAO reports.

News and the CCH NetWork

As part of CCH’s standard-setting Internet Research NetWork, the Medicare & Medicaid Tracker and the Home Health Tracker also deliver features that greatly enhance ease of use – whether subscribers are checking daily news or researching developments.

On the Internet Research NetWork, the Trackers are offered through a "My CCH" page – a personalized page where subscribers can put their favorite research publications from CCH’s extensive array of libraries offered on the Internet service.

"The Trackers deliver the best of both worlds," noted Geron. "They draw on CCH’s authoritative, comprehensive coverage of Medicare, Medicaid and Home Health developments, but allow users to select only the information that is important to them. They save professionals a lot of time. They’re simple, direct and focused."
