Electronic CMS Audit Response System (esMD)
The Fastrack Electronic CMS Audit Response System helps providers respond to audits by
streamlining the processes for the capture, storage and submission of medical documentation
to CMS. The new system for RAC, MAC and CERT audits will virtually eliminate the labor
intensive paper processes in responding to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services
The Fastrack Electronic Audit Response System integrates with the Fastrack Enterprise
System and works best with Fastrack’s Document Storage Module. Providers simply
enter the audit number received from CMS and select the documents that they wish to
electronically send to CMS in support of their response. Documents can easily be gathered
from the Document Storage Module, the file server or any user’s workstation and can
include faxed, emailed or scanned documents. Fastrack maintains a list of all the documents/
attachments transmitted as well as the status received back from CMS which includes acknowl-
edgement of receipt of the electronic file by Medicare. All transmissions are secure and HIPAA
Compliant and an unlimited number of pages can be submitted per audit. The system requires
minimal training to implement and use.
Several of the benefits of the electronic transmission of supporting documentation over the traditional
photocopying and mailing method:
Increased productivity including less time to respond to an audit reducing employee costs.
Less time spent tracking status
Eliminates the cost of postage and fax.
Eliminates lost attachments that delays the process
Record of every employee who viewed the attachments
Faster turnaround in processing by CMS
