    AUDITS AND FUTURE COMPLIANCE WEBINAR
    August 11, 2020
    12:00PM-1:00PM


    Program Objectives: Cost report Worksheet S-10 reporting may drive nearly $7.8 million in provider reimbursement for federal fiscal year 2021--making it an essential data source for hospitals. CMS has signaled that all hospitals will be audited and these increasingly extensive Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) audits could make it more challenging for your hospital to receive the reimbursement.

    1. Best practices for completing cost report Worksheet S-10 in accordance with the cost report instructions and audit expectations
    2. Differences between 2015, 2017, 2018 and anticipated future audits
    3. In-depth overview of the latest MAC audit data request letter


    Attendees Will Learn (or key takeaways):

    • Explain how Worksheet S-10 now affects provider reimbursement
    • Describe the S-10 audit process used by Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and what findings have been common thus far
    • Identify lessons learned and best practices to incorporate into your own for future reimbursement

The goal of this session is to discuss various fee models seen in 340B program management to examine trends that could threaten program benefit, and discuss the tools you may already have to adequately monitor your program. Going one step further. Additionally, we will be diving into how to share your use of savings in a constantly changing political landscape.

          Which Lookup Function Should I Use (Intermediate)


          While the iconic VLOOKUP function is probably the most popular lookup function, there are times when other options may be a better fit. Depending on the type of workbook, INDEX/MATCH or SUMIFS may offer some benefits. And, depending on the version of Excel you are using, XLOOKUP may be a wonderful option. Join us to learn the pros and cons of the key lookup functions and when to use each.

          Power Pivot Basics (Advanced)

          Do you ever import data into Excel, and then spend a bunch of time manually preparing it for use? Perhaps you delete extra columns or rows. Maybe you need to split a single column into multiple columns, or, combine multiple columns into a single column. The good news is that many of these transformations can be fully automated with Excel! Power Query is an incredibly powerful tool that, at a high level, helps us retrieve data from a variety of sources and prepare it for use. In this session, we’ll use Power Query to help with several common tasks, including flattening data, splitting and combining columns, formatting data, unpivoting summarized data, and combining several csv exports. If you frequently export/import data from one system to another, you will want to understand how to use Power Query to streamline your work. Learning objectives: (1) recall the steps to create a new query; (2) identify commands that transform data; and (3) state the process to return the transformed data to Excel.

We’ll talk about how to group your report into monthly columns and how to filter PivotTables as well. By the end of the session, you’ll understand how to create basic PivotTable reports.

          Excel Series 5
          Power Pivot Basics (Advanced)


          Do you love PivotTables? Of course, we all do! Traditional PivotTables are incredible … but, they do have limitations. If you have ever encountered one of these limitations, you’ll be excited to learn that by using Power Pivot, you’ll be able to bypass many of the restrictions that exist with traditional PivotTables. Power Pivot provides a new data source for PivotTables, and essentially combines the flexibility of formula-based reports with the PivotTable engine. Microsoft provides Power Pivot free for most editions of Excel for Windows 2010 and forward (currently, it is unavailable in Excel for Mac). In this session, we’ll explore Power Pivot and the data model, build PivotTables from multiple tables, create calculated columns, and write measures. If you frequently build PivotTables and would like to do more with them, you’ll want to understand how Power Pivot can enhance your reports and workflow. Learning objectives: (1) recall the steps to access the Power Pivot window; (2) identify the process to create table relationships; and (3) state the procedure for building named sets.

          Better Together (Power Query and Power Pivot) (Advanced)


          Excel users have prepared reports the same way for decades … formulas and PivotTables. Typically, we export data from an accounting system, copy and paste it into an Excel workbook, clean and prepare it for use, and then use PivotTables and/or functions such as VLOOKUP and SUMIFS. But, that workflow is manual and slow. In this session, we’ll use Power Query and Power Pivot to improve our workflow. Specifically, we’ll use Power Query to get and shape external data. We’ll send the query results into the data model. We’ll use Power Pivot to organize tables and create measures and then use them as the source for PivotTable reports. If you frequently build formula-based or PivotTable reports, join this session to learn how Power Query and Power Pivot can help. Learning objectives: (1) identify which tool in Excel helps to import and transform data; (2) state the process for relating tables in Power Pivot; and (3) recall a benefit of using Power Query and Power Pivot when building PivotTables.
