Michael Schramm, president of IVANS healthcare services said, "We look forward to showing providers how they can easily and safely submit and track medical information electronically instead of using manual processes."

IVANS, Inc. a national health information exchange, has been invited by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) to demonstrate its AuditDocs™ solution at the HIMSS12 Interoperability Showcase February 21-23, 2012 at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. AuditDocs, which resides on IVANS LIME® Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform, enables healthcare providers to quickly and securely submit medical documentation electronically for audits initiated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) under the Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD) initiative.

Since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) esMD gateway went live September 15, 2011, IVANS has electronically submitted more than 70,000 pages of medical documentation through AuditDocs, more than any other health information handler (HIH) participating in the CMS esMD initiative. Michael Schramm, president of IVANS healthcare services said, “As an HIH, IVANS continues to lead the charge in streamlining the Medicare audit process and reducing administrative costs for both providers and review contractors. Now with HIMSS12 just around the corner, we are honored to be a part of the ONC and FHA’s Interoperability Showcase, and look forward to showing providers how they can easily and safely submit and track medical information electronically instead of using manual processes.”
