more information or to order, call 1-800-449-9525.)
"It’s never been easier to stay informed about need-to-know
developments," said CCH marketing manager Anne Geron.
"Subscribers simply choose the kind of information they want. CCH
then searches for it and delivers it to the customer’s desktop as it
Customized to Customer Needs
Subscribers can tailor a personal "news feed" by choosing
from a variety of news topics and select the news topics and types of
documents they want to receive.
Once users have set their preferences, CCH then culls from its
comprehensive daily coverage of new developments only the news and
information subscribers want, and delivers it to them as
it becomes available
in the format
they choose. Subscribers even
determine how much information about a selected topic they want to
receive – headlines, summaries, or both.
With the CCH Tracker, subscribers set up searches once, and
get results as often as they occur. They can view their Tracker over
a specific time period: their Tracker archive will show them
everything on any given topic they’ve chosen by a specific date, or
over a select period of time.
Subscribers also can select all topics and receive the complete
range of new developments reported by CCH, or just focus on a few.
And, summaries of all source documents are available so users can make
informed decisions about what to access. In addition, subscribers can
enter their own terms that will be included in the Tracker searches.
- Medicare and Medicaid Topics
Medicare and Medicaid topics include such things as HIPAA
compliance, Billing, Coding, Cost Reports, Hospitals, Medicaid
Eligibility and more – there are 26 topics in all.
Users can also specify the type of documents they wish to receive
– such as cases, Federal Register, manuals, Laws and Regs and more.
Subscribers who want to keep on top of the latest Home Health
Medicare & Medicaid payments can choose from a wide variety of
Home Health news topics, from Compliance to Conditions of
Participation to OASIS. Over 30 topics are available to select from.
Then, you determine what type of documents you want to receive – for
example, court cases, DAB decisions or OIG/GAO reports.

noted Geron. "They draw on CCH’s authoritative, comprehensive

users to select only the information that is important to them. They
save professionals a lot of time. They’re simple, direct and
