Our Story


Founded in 1992, Healthcare Concepts was established to provide specialized services to the healthcare industry. These services allow providers an effective way to maintain profitability, compliancy, and integrity through an appropriate and responsible approach to Charge Description Master (CDM) management and coding compliance.

Through years of accumulated experience, we found that most providers had the same basic needs in sustaining the CDM. Limited sets of automated tools were being used and a number of manual processes had to take place in order to manage a CDM effectively. These manual processes possessed an inherent danger for making CDM management cumbersome and less than accurate. We knew that with our extensive knowledge of CDM management, and with the evolution of our automated tools and technology, we could provide a better solution. By reducing the need for manual intervention we were able to provide faster service times and increased value to our clients through the use of MedChex CDM Management Software.

TestimonialDeveloped in 1995, MedChex was designed as the first set of automated tools to enable providers the ability to efficiently assess and manage the CDM. Healthcare Concepts has used MedChex exclusively for all their engagements allowing them to provide a suite of services specializing in issues related to the CDM. These services took our client's CDM management and analysis from a strategic liability to a competitive advantage. Organizations using our services discovered that they could respond more quickly to changing healthcare regulatory environments and fiscal directives necessary to remain profitable.

MedChex was also the first tool to offer the level of sophistication and power sought after by large corporate hospital chains, Big 5 consulting firms and individual providers. Changes in reimbursement procedures have necessitated a restructuring of certain charges in the CDM. Another current trend in the industry has been to centralize the management of the CDM and standardize across multiple facilities. Many providers do not have the qualified resources to be able to adapt to these changes efficiently. MedChex, now in its third revision, has evolved to provide a more comprehensive level of capabilities such as those required by these factors. As a result, Healthcare Concepts is proud to announce additional service offerings consisting of CDM Re-Engineering, Master CDM Development and On-going CDM Management which leverage MedChex software capabilities.

We have experienced many of the issues that surface when faced with CDM management and have learned many invaluable lessons. Healthcare Concepts is well prepared for the challenges you will face and remain ready to help your staff in confronting them. One of the main differences between Healthcare Concepts and other firms is our commitment to partnering with providers. We make it a primary objective to ensure that once our initial engagement is underway there are a set of repeatable and proven processes in place to help you take advantage of the assessment and implementation of improvements to your CDM.

Healthcare Concepts is committed to providing the expertise needed to successfully assess and manage your CDM. Our proven procedures and use MedChex CDM Management Software assure that you receive the highest quality analysis of your CDM and the supporting documentation that you require. A comprehensive CDM management strategy gives you the advantage over regulatory changes that can affect your facilities' financial bottom line.
