    I am interested to know who or what department, in your organization, is responsible for receiving, reviewing, and taking action on the PEPPER Reports. What role does Corporate Compliance play?

    ​Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Our Quality Department has access to the PEPPER reports and sends them to me.  If I see anything concerning, I may add it to my audit plan.

    Hi Nancy,

    My experience has been the same as Cinda's.  The quality department reviewed the PEPPER reports.  I never saw them in compliance.  While in HIM, we sometimes used the PEPPER report for our CDI team to be mindful of certain DRGs billed that we were targeting focused reviews on.  Keep in mind that the data on the PEPPER report is from prior month's by the time you receive it so it is not something to use for real time review.

    Thanks,
    Laura

    Our UR department receives the PEPPER reports and sends it to me and quality for review and input.
