13 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 12 HIGLAS Access Job Roles, Responsibilities, and Job Role Constraints

14 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 13 Basic Design for Access Functionality and Access is assigned based on the various HIGLAS Modules or Job Role Categories –Accounts Payable –Accounts Receivable –General Ledger –Cash Management, Bank Information –Loans Management –Audit –AR Collections –General Ledger –Third Party Payments (TPP) –Federal Administration –Healthcare Transaction Base (HTB)

15 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 14 Functionality Within the modules you either have Update or Inquiry Capability The capability is determined by what Job Role is assigned to you Each job role has associated responsibilities and each responsibility provides specific functionality. It is a tiered approach.

16 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 15 Functionality Outline Tiered Approach – AP Module –Update AP Payments Add Update Inquire AP Payments –Add and Update AP Payments –Inquire AP Payments, payment batches form, payments form, payment overview form and withheld amounts form –View Accounting Lines –AP Setup Inquiry –Control Payables Periods Inquiry –Open Interfaces Invoices Inquiry –Run and View Selected AP Reports

17 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 16 AP Module

20 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 19 Job Role Constraints Part of our Job Role Functionality Outline is the Job Role Constraints Section. A work group reviewed the Job Roles and Responsibilities and developed a listing which indicates how to provide access without compromising segregation of duty requirements.

21 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 20 Job Role Constraints Access To Update AP Payments –Add and update claim payment data in the AP module or Access To Update AP Invoices –Add and update invoice claim information Access To Update AR Apply Receipts /AR Transactions –Add update receivable transaction data –Apply /reverse receipts (e.g. apply cash receipt to a receivable) Should Deny Access To Update AP AR Customer Add or Update AP Supplier Address or Update AP Supplier EFT or Update Banks Update AR Receipts –Add update cash receipts in AR module, but can’t apply/reverse the receipt to an AR.

22 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Job Roles, Responsibilities, and Job Role Constraints The Job Role and Responsibility Matrix was used to create the Job Role Functionality Outline. This document outlines the Job Roles, Responsibilities, and associated functionality. It also defines Job Constraints in a format that is easy to read and understand. The contractors determine access needs based on the functionality as defined by the job roles.
