Introducing compliance checks lists into your day-to-day activities is an easy step for maintaining compliance adherence. Implementing tools that promote auto checklists make document management and workflow easier than ever.

For regulated industries, managing compliance requirements can be difficult. Often managed manually, the room for error can be large and the fines even larger. This can all be done more effectively and without fail.

How Health Payers Benefit from Compliance Checklists

  • “Did we check if the font is what CMS accepts?”
  • “Does the first paragraph have all the required regulated information?”
  • “What is the deadline for submission?”

These are only a handful of questions health payers ask themselves multiple times throughout the year. Especially in preparation for The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Annual Election Period (AEP).

Blue relay helps combat the frustration health payers face to remain compliant. Blue Relay ensures that all the rules can be validated in a live manner as users go through a document. Through our effective review and approval interface, we reinforce compliance controls. This makes sure reviews are done on time while meeting the standards set out by regulatory bodies. By integrating compliance checklists within a standard review process, teams are provided a convenient way to ensure requirements are being thoroughly observed.

Blue Relay compliance forms and compliance checklists

A Health Plan Example

We have a long-standing client working in health plans, servicing thousands of members, and even more documents. They needed a more efficient way to manage over twenty-five compliance questions for each reviewed document.

With Blue Relay the compliance checklist tool requires each item to be completed before sending it to the next stakeholder. They no longer had to wonder about skipped compliance questions. Depending on the answers you put in, the document travels to different stakeholders in an automated process for greater efficiency.

Organizations have full ability to customize their own questions given their varied needs:

  • type of CMS review
  • submission code
  • approval date,
  • when it was sent to a 508 vendor

Making this process even easier, Blue Relay allows you to analyze last year’s CMS forms with this years. This completely eliminates the need to manually compare and check each document.
