Medical Review Documentation Compliance and Technology Contractor
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
As the Medical Review Documentation Compliance and Technology Contractor, also known as the Documentation Compliance Contractor (DCC), CVP provide services that facilitate health care providers’ medical record documentation and Medicare contractors’ review of medical record documentation.
As the DCC, we work to standardize health care providers’ medical record documentation through the creation of data entry templates, creation and maintenance of libraries of paper and electronic templates, development of business rules for each template and creation of review guidelines for the templates developed. Improper payment represented about $46 billion for CMS in 2014. Standardization will also reduce unnecessary paperwork and administrative burden on health care providers.
CVP began developing and implementing a Medicare Templates website and eClinical Template Library to make the data elements, templates, and supporting documentation available to users. The website also educates stakeholders, healthcare providers and associations, and vendors on how to use the system. It shows how the new system will simplify and streamline data collection for the healthcare provider.
