HealthCare Resource Group is a dba of VSA & Associates, Inc., and has been in business since 1987.
This was about the time when Payors, Medicare, and Medicaid began to insist on medical cost management. For the first years of business, we operated as a medical cost management consulting firm. We consulted with healthcare organizations nationwide. Our main consulting task was to evaluate the needs of healthcare organizations of all sizes and complexity, and implement cost management solutions including fraud prevention and management. We pioneered the development, and implementation of medical cost and fraud management solutions for organizations such as Insurance Companies, Employers, the US Navy Healthcare System, the Correctional Healthcare System, the US Airforce Healthcare System, the Correctional Healthcare System, the Veteran’s Administration HealthCare Systems, Medicare and Medicaid managed care organizations, multi-specialty Physician Groups, and Preferred Provider Organizations.
At HCRG, our people are at the heart of everything we do. They represent us and are our voice when interfacing with our clients and the public as a whole. We are proud of the work we have done and continue to do in developing an outstanding workforce. Employee engagement and satisfaction is critical to our company’s long term sustainability. This is why we strive to hire the right people and develop them professionally to their full potential. We foster an ethical environment which allows all members of our diverse team to excel.
For the above mentioned organizations, we developed models and tools for management, operations, work processes, work methodologies, information management, and data reporting systems to implement medical cost management product lines. Specifically, we developed and implemented infrastructures for Utilization Review, Case Management, Discharge Planning, Clinical Chart Audit, Bill Review, Pharmacy Management, Chronic Disease Management and fraud management implementation across complex healthcare systems. The medical cost management solutions were each uniquely designed to meet the specific requirements of the integrated healthcare system, namely Inpatient, Outpatient, Outpatient Surgery, radiology, physical therapy, ambulatory clinics, multi-specialty clinics and disease specific clinics. Our knowledge, competence and intelligence in the area of medical cost and fraud management is second to none.
We have extensive knowledge in health plans, medicare, medicaid, military and correctional healthcare systems. We understand fraud, abuse and waste. We are specifically organized to assist payers to identify, prevent, and manage fraud. We have expertise to work with SIU units to assist in the combating of healthcare fraud through a broad range of technical CPT code and medical necessity reviews. We cover a broad range of scope in our reviews.
We have directed our knowledge and expertise towards the Workers’ Compensation industry, specializing in Workers’ Compensation medical cost containment solutions.
