BHM Healthcare Solutions has been named by MHA as one of the “Top 100 Health Care Organizations to Watch for 2013”. The Top 100 includes hospitals and clinics, health management and administration, and health information technology categories.
Online PR News – 25-February-2013 – St. Louis, MO – BHM Healthcare Solutions (BHM) is appreciative of the inclusion as one of “The Top 100 Health Care Organizations to Watch for 2013.” It is a credit to the healthcare management consulting industry as a whole and stresses the fact that sometimes healthcare organizations need assistance deciphering and complying with the dynamic healthcare industry. The categories included in MHA’s Top 100 list are: hospitals and clinics, health management and administration, and health information technology. It is an honor to be recognized in the same class of organizations as: Kaiser Permanente, Health Management Associates (HMA), Healthcare Information and Management Systems (HIMSS), American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Associates (ASHRA), AAPC, Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), and Healthcare Management Associates (HMA).
BHM is currently working on many strategic initiatives including assisting organizations and providers in transitioning to managed care, assisting medical homes in achieving accreditation, and most recently assisting organizations in locating healthcare experts for litigation. We are actively involved in social media including Linkedin, Google +, Twitter, and Facebook. We have established a Linkedin group called Healthcare Insider and five communities on Google + including: Healthcare Insider, Healthcare Accreditation, Healthcare Integration, Managed Care, and Healthcare Reform. Recently, we have expanded beyond our company borders to form reciprocal blogging relationships which is such a wonderful way to network with other healthcare organizations.
BHM’s website contains a wealth of information to assist organizations with unraveling the complexities of healthcare. Included on our website is a healthcare blog which is updated daily, free presentations on Medical Necessity Criteria, Mental Health Parity, Electronic Medical Records, and Denial Management, and case studies. We are currently in the process of finalizing additional free information regarding healthcare accreditation as well. Additionally, BHM has achieved URAC Accreditation for our IRO services as well as PCHCH Auditor Certification which allows us not only to assist with the accreditation process but also allows us to perform the official audit for URAC. BHM is one of only 6 organizations in the country to have achieved this designation.
The healthcare industry is dynamic in nature. Health care organizations experience great difficulty in remaining current and complying with the ever-changing legislation while trying to avoid enormous penalties associated with non-compliance. Some of the current issues include: changing technology (such as electronic medical records), aging population, HIPAA Compliance, ICD-10 coding, medical homes and the accreditation thereof, Accountable Care Organizations, Health Insurance Exchanges, transitioning to Managed Care Organizations, and changes to Medicare/Medicaid.
The Masters of Health Administration Programs (MHA) is an organization which offers a wide variety of topics relating to health administration. Some of these topics include: salary and job advancement opportunities, types of degree programs, and a listing of accredited online institutions. A Masters of Health Administration allows a student to specialize in health administration which is a great compliment to the traditional MBA, as it combines the fundamental aspects of both medical and business. An MHA gives healthcare professionals a competitive advantage.
BHM would like to thank MHA programs for the inclusion in the Top 100 Health Care Organizations to Watch for 2013. Congratulations to the remaining 99 companies! The full article may be found: http://www.mhaprograms.org/organizations-to-watch.html
