Visibility to your CDM data continues to become more complex. Today more hospitals are switching to sophisticated Patient Accounting Systems (PASs) that replace traditional data structures with a more global and interconnected CDM approach. This industry shift in the way PASs - handle service line data obscures the 360 data view, impacting critical visibility to accurately code and bill for the services received by the patient. As a result, this strains healthcare administrative resources, putting compliance and revenue at risk.
VitalView™, a powerful feature available with our VitalCDM™ product suite, eliminates the challenge of limited viewability through a proprietary multi-source 360 view giving complete transparency and connection to all ancillary systems referenced and utilized by your organization.

Pharmacy File Analysis
Ensure appropriate pharmacy medication billing by making sure your CDM and Pharmacy Drug Master (PDM) are in sync. Hospital pharmacy billing is complicated, and these systems typically contain between 2,500 and 4,000 active drug records, while CDM records in traditional billing environments range between 2,500 and 4,000 records.
In addition to maintaining each of these large databases and the interfaces between them, hospitals must also design a routine process for quickly adding new medications. Managing the pharmacy clinical and billing systems is challenging, often resulting in rejections, inaccurate charge information and missed payment opportunities. VitalCDM’s Pharmacy Analysis add-on module assists with this complicated process.
- Analyze pharmacy information using your PDM or CDM if it includes the National Drug Code (NDC)
- Pharmacy Analysis includes:
- NDC validation for billable codes
- Review descriptions using NDC, HCPCS codes and CDM descriptions
- Suggestions for appropriate HCPCS code assignment specific to the NDC
- Pricing analysis using Ambulatory Payment Classifications (APC), Average Sales Price (ASP) and Average Wholesale Price (AWP)
- Suggested revenue code assignment
