Panacea will provide resources to help healthcare organizations determine how they can better meet the CMS final pricing transparency requirements at the Becker’s Hospital Review 10th Annual Meeting.

LEHI, Utah—March 21, 2019—Panacea, a leading provider of mid-revenue cycle management software, consulting and educational solutions, will be focusing on helping healthcare organizations attending the Becker’s Hospital Review 10th Annual Meeting, being held in Chicago April 1 through 4, ensure they are meeting the price transparency requirements recently clarified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

“Pricing transparency requires you to have the right answers to three key questions,” said Ted Barduson, President and General Manager of Panacea. “First, Did you re-align your 2019 CDM prices with cost, market, fee schedule and other benchmarks so that published prices are defensible? Second, Did you publish your average DRG charges and drug and biological prices as required by CMS? Third, What methodology did you use to assess your drug pricing and is it a “best practice” methodology? The correct answers to these questions may determine your compliance with the minimum requirements and preparation for the public scrutiny of the CMS 2019 pricing transparency rule. As the industry leader in rational hospital, physician and drug pricing, Panacea is making this its primary focus at the Becker’s annual conference.”

Panacea will be exhibiting at the Becker’s Hospital Review 10th Annual Meeting in booth 1322. In its booth the company will have more information on how organizations can evaluate whether they are meeting the CMS pricing transparency requirements and discuss how to create a focused and actionable strategic plan around emerging competitive threats, price sensitivity and consumerism.

At the meeting, Panacea will also be giving away an Operational Price Transparency Package. This package includes a 4-hour pricing strategy session with one of Panacea’s expert pricing consultants as well as a peer analysis report. This report will provide actionable data with up to 10 peers from the organization’s local or regional area. Attendees can register to win this valuable prize by visiting the Panacea booth.
