The Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Reports (PEPPER) website just got a huge makeover. The re-vamped FAQ and Training and Resources pages can still be found at www.pepperresources.org, which can now be viewed on mobile devices.

What about Home Health?
PEPPER is coming soon to Home Health! Don't miss the boat: sign up for e-mail updates so that you will hear when PEPPER reports are available for home health agencies.

Don't wait for PEPPER data to come to you. The PEPPER website puts a lot of data at your fingertips, so that you can make it work for your compliance program. Check out the Data page, and the Training and Resources page. Once you understand the data the government is tracking with PEPPER, look at your organization's own data in the same areas and see how you measure up. Are you an outlier in any of these areas? If so, look deeper to see if you have a potential compliance problem.
