MEPRS 2010 From Source to Resource: Data Quality Solutions for Today's MEPRS Challenges 26 – 29 July Lansdowne, VA Briefing: MEPRS Fundamentals Speakers: Paulette Richards Sheri Weis Date: 29 July 2010 Time:1300 – 1500
MEPRS 2010 From Source to Resource: Data Quality Solutions for Today's MEPRS Challenges 26 – 29 July Lansdowne, VA MEPRS Fundamentals: Background Standard Tables Financial Processing Paulette Richards
MEPRS Fundamentals Objectives Understanding the basics of MEPRS Processing: Who… What… When… Where… Why… And HOW Financial, Workload and Personnel 4
WHY MEPRS Increased overhead and support costs The quality of systems for planning, management, and evaluation Anticipated physician shortages. The social equality of military medical care and its compatibility with national health care objectives. Uniform Chart of Accounts (UCA) aka MEPRS Joint study tasked to address four concerns:
WHY MEPRS 6 MTFs used separate & independent systems & data bases Valid comparisons between MTF and the Services could not be made Inconsistent & non-comparable data maintained Different interpretations of common data Performance Measurements UNIFORM CHART OF ACCOUNTS Reporting
STANDARD TABLES TRICARE MANAGEMENT ACTIVITY FCC Master – Standard to the third position of the Functional Cost Code (4th pos service unique ) Standard Documentation Code Table Service Element Expense Code (EEIC) Program Element Code (PEC)
8 Functional Categories
ASD & EAS IV PROCESSING MODEL
HOW is the ASD is STORED o The table is stored in the EASi application. o NOTE: At the beginning of each year the table is reviewed. WHAT is an ASD? o ASD table is the dictionary listing of Functional Cost Codes (FCCs) which defines your MTF data reporting. This table defines what goes on in your MTF. Account Subset Definition (ASD) Table Fundamentals HOW is the ASD Created? o AF MEPRS SG establishes approved FCC codes with the ASN in a standard table for the entire AF. o MEPRS Manager reviews and submits their local table. HOW is the ASD Used o Determines if FCC are valid. o Contains the ASN which determines the order in which expenses from Intermediate accounts are allocated to Final accounts in the step-down process.
ASD – CRITERIA FOR FCC CREATION ASD CRITERIA Unique Accounts: Service provided must be unique and not duplicated/provided by another work-center. Expenses – Attributed to work-center. Expenses include: direct, resource sharing, contract and personnel. Workload Measure – Must have ability to measure meaningful workload identified in the DoD M Physical space – A location where the services are provided, must be capable of being measured in square. Work-center : Must meet definition as outlined in DoD M Personnel – Must have assigned/available personnel as identified in the DoD M
D&E FCCs require ASN Clear Description s Make sure all RC/CCs are current

ASD STAKEHOLDERS PEOPLE MANAGEMENT MEPRS MANAGER Budget Office – Involved with correcting and identifying expenses associated with the work-center Logistics Office – Ensure proper reporting of supplies, equipment, square footage and depreciation RMO CHCS DBA – Ensure the CHCS table is properly reporting workload for each MEPRS/FCCs Manpower Office – Ensure the Activity Manning Document is up-to -date.
ASD CHECKLIST HELPFUL NOTES INACTIVATE DATES will cause a warning in the error correction unit (ECU) during the initial validation process. ADD an FCC: Ensure MEPRS/FCCs are aligned with DoD M D and E FCC require ASN INACTIVATE an FCC: This is a TEMPORARY date and can only occur in the current fiscal year. * The date range must be within the current FY DEACTIVATE an FCC: This is a PERMANENT date. * Date cannot be before the beginning of the current year (30 Sep FY) REACTIVATE an FCC: You will need to re-enter a current dat within the current fiscal year. * Change the inactivate Date Range. FCCs can be added or reactivated in mid- year. Ensure the default date is changed. TEAM EFFORT - All FCCs should be reviewed by RMO team and validated against the AF FCC Master Table.
PURPOSE & IMPACT Summary The ASD is the roadmap which defines MTF unique data used by Expense Assignment System (EAS ) processing. MEPRS utilizes Standardized business rules for collecting, calculating and reporting data used for clinical and management decisions. Standard tables are published and maintained by TMA ensure MHS follow standardized business rules.

FINANCIAL DATA OVERVIEW 24 What should I do to make sure MEPRS Financial data is accurate? Become familiar with data elements (PECs/RC/CC) and how they relate to FCCs. Become intimately familiar with the Financial Program Element (PE) Map table that is provided each year by AF MEPRS Program Mgr Know what data should be reported in MEPRS. Each work center must be mapped to a cost center Coordination between MEPRS Mgr, Logistics, Budget and Resource Mgr.
ALLOCATION PROCESS IN THE EAS IV PROCESSING MODEL
DEFINITION: Allocation is the reassignment (step down) of intermediate operating accounts (D & E ) expenses to final operating accounts (A, B, C, F and G) on the basis of the ASN from the ASD. WHY WE DO COST ALLOCATION: Provides the “Total Cost of Doing Business” o Incorporates overhead expenses (Utilities, depreciation, housekeeping, etc.) o Determines total “unit cost” o Provides comparability with the civilian sector cost allocation methods
DEFINITION: The reassignment of intermediate operating (D & E) expenses is performed on the basis of assignment factors or ratios that measure the amount of services rendered by intermediate work centers to the other work centers. WHY WE DO COST ALLOCATION: Provides the “Cost of Doing Business” o Incorporates overhead expenses (Utilities, depreciation, housekeeping, etc.) o Determines real “unit cost” o Provides comparability with civilian sector cost allocation methods

MEPRS 2010 From Source to Resource: Data Quality Solutions for Today's MEPRS Challenges 26 – 29 July Lansdowne, VA MEPRS Fundamentals: Workload and Personnel Processes Sheri Weis
EAS Processes: Workload 37 System-Generated Data and Non-System Generated Data
EAS Processes: Workload System Generated Data CHCS: Workload Assignment Module (WAM) Data Sets: ADM Dispositions Occupied Bed Days Outpatient Visits Pharmacy (DAAA) Total Visits Radiology (DCAA) Pathology (DBAA) (only Lab and Rad provide CPT workload data) 38
EAS Processes: Workload System Generated Data: WAM 39 WAM is a Tri-Service component of CHCS that standardizes and streamlines workload reporting for MEPRS/EAS. Workload templates are created at the beginning of each month using the Initialization action. All Data Set Identification (DSI) must be in Approved status for the ASCII file to be either created or re-created. The ASCII file must be generated, before it’s transmitted to EAS via electronic interface.
EAS Processes: Workload System Generated Data: WAM 40
EAS Processes: Workload Non-System Generated Data 41 Dental Services Account Data Sets Ancillary Services Accounts Data Sets Lab/Rad/Pharmacy are system-generated Support Services Accounts Data Sets Special Program Accounts Data Sets Readiness Program Accounts Data Sets Square Footage and Square Footage Cleaned
Ancillary Services Accounts Data Sets (D***) 42 EAS Processes: Workload Non-System Generated Data
43 Support Services Accounts Data Sets (E***)
EAS Processes: Workload Non-System Generated Data Special Program Accounts Data Sets (F***) 44
EAS Processes: Workload Non-System Generated Data Readiness Program Accounts Data Sets (G***) 45 Captures only War Reserve Medical (WRM) readiness workload performed at your local facility- $ amounts. (GEAA) Square Footage and Square Footage Cleaned The Facility section should provide square footage information. Be sure to make all corrections in the first month of the fiscal year. Compare Square Footage with the Square Footage Cleaned to ensure the correct values are being reported.
EAS Processes: Workload Datasets 46 Example
EAS Processes: Workload Steps 1. Import monthly CHCS/WAM file 2. Validation: select “ Available to Validate” 3. Address Errors and Warnings in the ECU: research, correct and re-validate 4. Enter Non-System Generated Reports under Adjustments-Workload-Data Sets 47
EAS Processes: Workload Reconciliation 48 CHCS Reports: World Wide Workload Report (WWR): Validate monthly CHCS WAM workload prior to transmittal to EAS IV Follows the same business rules for calculating workload as WAM Can be used to validate Occupied Bed Days and Admissions Monthly Statistical Report: Count and Non-Count for In-/Out-Patient areas by MEPRS Code; in-depth look at discrepancies between the WWR and EASIV End of Day processing must be completed before the MSR can be generated
EAS Processes: Workload Stakeholders 49 MEPRS EAS
EAS Processes: Personnel 50
EAS Processes: Personnel 51 Good, basic stuff to know: 1 FTE = 168 hours /month Where are they? Available/Non-Available Time 5 Skill Types + Occupation Codes-what are they?
EAS Processes: Personnel Good basic stuff to know: 1 FTE = 168 hours /month Are personnel assignments correct Report all Available/Non-Available Time 5 Skill Types + Occupation Codes-what are they? 52
EAS Processes: Personnel DMHRSi LCA Specialist: DMHRSi Output File DoD Create EASIV Extract File_XXXXXX (Text file for importing into EAS) After creating the DMHRSi output file, run the EAS IV Assigned Personnel and EAS IV Summary View reports- will help you to investigate errors Note: Personnel errors cannot be adjusted in EAS. They must be corrected in the source system (DMHRSi), then re-imported. 53
EAS Processes: Personnel Steps All personnel time has been processed for the month! 2. DMHRSi-DoD EASIV CREATE FILE : save as text file for import 3. Upload Personnel file 4.Import Personnel file 5.Validation: select “ Available to Validate” 6. Address Errors and Warnings in the ECU: research, make corrections in DMHRSi, re-import and re- validate
EAS Processes: Personnel Reconciliation Compare the DMHRSi EAS IV Summary View Report with the EASIV Personnel Allocated Report to ensure that the total FTEs match 55
