Leading Healthcare Consultant LW Consulting Offers LWEnS Software
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — LW Consulting offers healthcare facilities LWEnS Software, a service that will help providers verify that their staff and those with which they have other business relationships, including other providers, contractors and vendors, are not Medicare or State Excluded or Sanctioned Individuals or Entities.
This is important because many states are now requiring that healthcare facilities recheck sanctions and exclusions on a monthly basis. It is also considered a best practice to perform these kinds of checks on a regular basis, which will keep healthcare organizations updated on any potential exclusions. By doing this, organizations avoid larger repayments.
At LW Consulting, we agree that every facility should run at least a monthly batch check on all of its staff, providers, and contractors. It takes no extra time to do it, costs very little, and tells you what you need to know, when you need to know it. Also, no company should knowingly run the risk of being out of compliance.
According to Rod Farley, the Director of LW Consulting, the LWEnS Software program is a “cost-effective option to verify that employees and vendors are not in exclusion and sanctioned data bases.”
