Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
RACmonitor, the premier provider of regulatory audit news and information, is unveiling its revamped website this week, the first major site overhaul since the online news organization went online in December 4, 2008.
Among the major changes include an increased social integration component that allows users to share instantly breaking news stories via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and over 300 additional social networking platforms.
Built on the most current version of Joomla’s web platform, the RACmonitor site boasts enhanced performance and speed. It has been optimized for web browser both old and new versions.
Used as a reference for visitors seeking current and past activities by the recovery auditors, site’s front-page news and article user interface has been improved. It is now more efficient for visitors find the latest news on the homepage.
RACmonitor was formed in 2008 to bring together healthcare providers, looking for solutions to help them deal effectively with issues arising from the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program that was mandated by Congress by offering tools and solutions from established healthcare vendors.
Although the RAC program was a pilot project involving four states, CMS rolled the program out nationally in 2010.
In 2011, CMS changed the RAC name to Recovery Auditors in recognition of an expanding category of auditors including the Medicaid RACs and the Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPICs).
Today, RACmonitor, with more than 35,000 visitors, has expanded its coverage to include auditing activities taking place in outpatient facilities, home health and long term care hospitals.
RACmonitor, a division of Panacea Healthcare Solutions, Inc, is an online news and information source to help healthcare providers make informed decisions for their organizations on the activities of Recovery Audit Contractors — the congressionally mandated program under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). RACmonitor is not affiliated with any governmental agency but is a source for healthcare providers in all settings.
