Check printing challenge solved.
A critical access facility in California lost a check print file before they were able to print any checks. Following standard procedures, they attempted to restore the payroll files from their pre-payroll save. They quickly discovered their backup file was corrupt and wouldn’t allow them to restore the files. Their software vendor support line was no help, so the hospital’s IT Director contacted MHE Consulting to recreate the check print file. We put an analyst on the job immediately, and within three hours the check print file was re-established.
Report generation, perfected.
A large Connecticut hospital was continuously challenged to produce a 401k plan reporting through their payroll software’s standard reporting processes. Over a number of years the hospital’s IT staff had developed what proved to be a complex and unreliable program to meet reporting requirements. The reporting had become convoluted and error-prone, thanks to the ever-changing plan reporting requirements and hard-coded tables. MHE Consulting transformed the process using best practices and modern programming techniques. In a matter of days we produced a simplified reporting system with straightforward logic and user-maintained tables. The result? The hospital has virtually eliminated reporting errors, and future changes are as simple as changing a table.
Custom software program saves the day
A major East Coast hospital of a national health organization needed to change the balance in their grandfathered leave banks from an hour amount to a dollar amount. The existing software didn’t accommodate the new method of tracking the leave bank balances, so the hospital approached MHE Consulting to design a custom program. Our specialists developed a new program within a matter of weeks, putting the hospital in compliance with national requirements.
Expertise + Bandwidth = Reporting Compliance
A large New England medical center enrolled in NDNQI. Requisite to their participation in that program, the facility needed an XML file for data submission. Due to the complex nature of the reports, the hospital IT staff felt they had neither the time nor the resources to automate the NDNQI reporting process. They approached MHE Consulting and asked us to automate their NDNQI reporting. Through careful research and analysis of the NDNQI report documentation our specialists were able to create a program that created the required file. Thanks to that file, the hospital no longer has to rely on manual data collection to meet their NDNQI reporting requirements.
