Health Economic Advisors, Inc.

HEA Logo

Established in 2007, Health Economic Advisors (HEA) is a national healthcare-consulting firm specializing in MBSCR Staffing and data entry, offering the first bariatric document management system, Accreditation Checkmate.
Accreditation today focuses on data and requires programs to employ a Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Clinical Reviewer (MBSCR). The MBSCR is a key position in any program. HEA will provide your facility with an RN/LPN who is a certified MBSCR experienced in bariatric data abstraction, quality improvement, and the accreditation process. While helping ensure your program is in compliance with the MBSAQIP standards regarding data entry, the MBSCR also uses the data to identify the need for and assist with Quality Improvement Initiatives.

HEA’s Accreditation Checkmate is an interactive web-based software that allows a bariatric program to create, edit, develop, and organize the documentation needed for bariatric accreditation/re-accreditation, site visits, and reviews. The software allows members of a bariatric surgical program to prepare all necessary documentation in one centralized and secure online portal in preparation for site inspections, either on-site or virtual.

HEA will assist your bariatric team in developing structure within your program by educating staff on and implementing the most appropriate and efficient processes and tools necessary to conform to the MBSAQIP standards and maintain bariatric accreditation readiness throughout the three-year accreditation cycle.

Whether you are starting a bariatric program and would like to better understand bariatric surgical service line profitability and the accreditation process or are an established bariatric program wanting to pursue/maintain accreditation, increase surgical volume, or implement quality improvement programs, HEA is the solution for you!
