Core Measure Abstraction Company

Core Measure Abstraction Company Our team has worked as a Core Measures Abstraction Company since the inception of the program. We have maintained a high degree of knowledge of these and developing guidelines; a level of expertise that was recently called upon for a court case that was heard in Washington DC.
During the case, we were called as expert witnesses. It was our testimony as a leading core measures abstraction company that helped a hospital win their case and gain full reimbursement of their APU payment*. We have also presented on CHF and CAD for the Get with the Guidelines program at the American Heart Association.
Core Measures was a program started by CMS in an attempt to ensure a universal quality of care for patients. The program has developed into a set of “measures” that hospitals are required to report on in order to receive their full APU reimbursement.
We have hundreds of satisfied clients. Direct Difference’s considerable knowledge of Core Measures has enabled us to help institutions overcome the extensive burden that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services(CMS) has placed on hospitals nation-wide.
