"When UCHealth researched tools five years ago to manage our charge master, we were at unique point in our growth as a health care system. We were becoming a multi-hospital system and needed scalability, efficiency and functionality. VitalWare™ allows us to grow and expand while also providing a high-tech tool that is constantly updated with innovative developments. We are also able to give feedback and have suggestions implemented into the tool. Ultimately, VitalWare helps UCHealth operate efficiently and innovatively while providing excellent service and care for our patients."

“With VitalWare™ we finally have a usable chargemaster that can be imported and analyzed out of Epic into a single line! VitalWare saves us hours of coding research, and we can now answer reimbursement questions much faster. Finding any CPT® code is simple and swift, and the OPPS calculator is a big help verifying that payments are correct. VitalWare’s great features make us more efficient every day.”

"Area hospitals suggested we look at VitalWare™, and we’re glad we did! VitalWare conducted a comprehensive Chargemaster audit then delivered detailed reports -- very helpful in implementing changes. Because of VitalWare, we are better aligned with our Finance department in making price changes and have improved communications. Our support team has been knowledgeable and professional. We are very happy we chose VitalWare!"

"VitalWare's OPPS Calculator is an incredible time saving tool giving us immediate benefit. With our new OPPS calculator, we are twice as productive, cutting our processing time in half. Consequently, we are also much more accurate at identifying underpayments, catching billing errors, and keeping our AR (Account Receivables) in balance."

"I would recommend VitalKnowledge to other hospitals. I’ve been doing the Chargemaster for seven years and was involved in all of our year-end changes. VitalKnowledge is a huge help because we are able to export many things into Excel format to formulate our spreadsheets for year-end – for coding changes and for all of our departmental changes. Everyone in Chargemaster knows that it is a busy and challenging time of year, and in comparison to previous years I can’t even express how helpful it was."
"I would recommend VitalCDM because it’s so easy to use. You can track variances between the catalog and the site chargemaster line items, identify linked and un-linked items and quantify the percentage of standardization, providing a pathway to success. Roll-up reporting provides excellent statistical information across our health system."
"I was excited when we decided to move to Vitalware as it seemed so easy to use, and it is. VitalCDM is extremely user-friendly and the Client Service has been great. This really exceeded our expectations in December updating expired or changing charge CPT codes. I would highly recommend Vitalware to anyone looking at a chargemaster tool."

"I have been in my role for 2 years. In the first year of my employment we used a different company for our chargemaster tool. That tool was not very user friendly. When we decided to go to VitalWare I was extremely excited as it seemed the tool would be easy to use, and it is. Very easy to use, great customer service, and exceeded my expectations this past December when I got ready to update charge codes that had expired or changing CPT codes. EXCELLENT TOOL!!!"
