Baptist Health System Upgrades to Continuous Auditing With ACL AuditExchange

August 28, 2012

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ACL Services Ltd. today announced that Baptist Health System, Inc. (BHS), a not-for-profit, 501(c) corporation and one of the largest employers in Alabama, has increased its internal audit team’s overall productivity by upgrading to ACL AuditExchange(TM), a continuous auditing solution. ACL AuditExchange enables the BHS auditors to schedule data extractions, conduct routine analyses and automate reporting, allowing the company’s internal audit team to identify discrepancies and complete audits 10 times faster than before.

BHS must adhere to multiple government regulations and provisions related to payments to physicians. Prior to implementing the new system, on-site audits required hundreds of staff hours to complete, and only identified billing and payment issues that occurred more than 12 months prior. The ACL AuditExchange solution provides BHS with automated analyses that run just 30 days after payments.

“Working with ACL technology has elevated our reputation as a trusted resource within BHS,” said Brantley Synco, Director of Audit Services at BHS. “The internal audit group is increasingly viewed as a business partner that adds significant value to the entire organization.”

According to Synco, automating the compliance audits of nearly 500 credentialed physicians at BHS has been one of the team’s most successful projects to-date.

The team has also implemented other analytics that run on a regular basis to look for duplicate invoices and other red flags. Widespread knowledge that BHS tests every transaction and has strong internal controls is serving as a powerful weapon against fraud.
