Cost Collection Subscription Options

Is your ambulance service ready to meet the cost data collection requirements that go into effect January 1, 2020? To answer this need, the American Ambulance Association has developed comprehensive Ambulance Cost Education to help your service prepare for the roll out of the new mandated federal reporting requirements.

 

Subscription Highlights

In addition to regional workshops, tightly-focused webinars, user groups and other events led by our panel of experts, there are cutting-edge tools and resources offered in our subscription packages. Just some of these tools include:

  • Accounting Manual: Go beyond the bare-bones chart of accounts with this ambulance service budgeting and accounting manual, providing more detailed descriptions of each entry in the chart. The Accounting Manual contains examples and suggestions about where to code specific types of revenues and costs, the manual will make ambulance service accounting easier and more consistent. Available January 2019.
  • Chart of Accounts: For the first time, ambulance services will be required to submit detailed information about their revenues and costs to the federal government, with real consequences for incorrect or missing data. The chart of accounts is the first step in ensuring that your service is compiling the right numbers—providing a standard baseline set of accounts to characterize your operations. Adopting this chart will help ease the reporting burden by reducing the need to crosswalk or go back and dive into data at report time. Available January 2019.
  • Amber™ Cost Collection Software: Amber™ is your web-based assistant for completing federal reporting. Loaded with helpful guidance, tips, and examples, the system walks you step-by-step through gathering the information you need, formatting it, and getting it ready to submit. It’s like having an expert sit with you as you go through the process! Available Fall 2019.
  • Amber™ Encyclopedia: Sometimes, it’s easier to just have all the reference material in one place. Read it, print it, refer back to it: the Encyclopedia makes it easy. In this document, we’ve taken all the help and pointers scattered throughout Amber and compiled them in one place. Figure out how to account for volunteer labor, how to allocate transport costs by NPI, how to report grants-in-kind—all without lots of extra clicking. The Encyclopedia is a one-stop shop. Available Fall 2019.
  • Application Programming Interface (API): The API gives services a different way to interact with the Amber™ system. In addition to hand-entering data into the system, the API allows your technical team (or your vendor’s team) to directly import data. From there, you can go into the system on the web to confirm, adjust, or review the entries. Why re-enter data if you don’t have to? The API, once implemented on your end, makes the transfer a breeze. Available Fall 2019.
