2011 HAR Education and Information Session Amy Camp, MDH Jonathan Peters, MHA Lucas Hovila, MHA
2011 Education and Information Topics Changes to the 2011 Formset & Extension Requests Data Requests & Usage Capital Expenditure Hospital and System Level Reporting Diagnostic Imaging Reporting Clinic Reporting on the HAR Self-Pay and Charity Care Reminders, Resources, and Tips Medical Care Surcharge Estimator
2011 Formset Changes Removed: –GAMC Payer Information –PGAMC Payer Information –Prescription Drug Purchases –PFSR – However, DI and Capital Expenditures still need to be reported.
Extension Requests Increasingly, the legislature and the public are looking for more up-to-date information from government. MDH wants to work with MHA and hospitals on reducing the need for data filing extensions beyond the initial 30 days. We hope MDH will need to grant longer extension requests only in the most extreme cases, where sticking to the timeline would pose and undue hardship on hospitals or compromise the quality of the report.
Who Requests HAR Data? Other Areas of MDH MN Legislature MN Department of Human Services Media MN Nurses Association Researchers in Public Policy

Use of Capital Expenditure Information Capital expenditure information is used by MDH to fulfill statutory requirements to review major spending commitments by hospitals and other providers. MDH also uses capital expenditure data to produce informational documents to inform the public on spending trends.

Diagnostic Imaging Reporting Guidelines for Diagnostic Imaging
Diagnostic Imaging Provider For Diagnostic Imaging Services, if your hospital has the service available on site (either by the hospital or contracted services), you will be asked to provide the name of the provider. This is being asked to help tie diagnostic imaging provider information (which is collected on separate report) to the HAR data. Contact your Radiation Safety Officer to confirm the DI equipment available at your facility.
Diagnostic Imaging If the hospital has a fee per scan/exam plan, the service should be listed as available and must list the owner of the equipment. If the hospital has a Capital Lease for a scanner then for purposes of HCCIS, the scanner should be listed as being hospital owned.
Diagnostic Imaging There will be an audit check to match the availability of service, the machine type, and the owner of the machine to what was reported the previous year. If anything has changed, please provide a note describing the change. This information is also verified against a report that DI providers supply MDH.
Self-Pay and Charity Care Reporting Self-Pay and Charity Care on the HAR
Self Pay and Charity Care The percentage discount offered to Self Pay patients will be collected. Please note that this will be non public data. Charity Care Adjustments will be broken out into Insured vs. Uninsured. Within Uninsured, three further pieces of data will be collected: Amount that was 100% discounted Amount that was only a partial discount of full bill The average partial discount given to uninsured patients
Self Pay and Charity Care Remember that only Uninsured Patients Charity Care needs to be broken out into Full and Partial Charity Care (accounts 7573 and 7574, respectively), not the total charity care adjustment amount. Partial Charity Care (account 7574) is now an auto- calculated cell to aid preparers in filling this section out correctly.
