Proper Patient Status Determination:
A Key to Success
Inaccurate patient status determination drives denials, disrupts patient flow, hinders nursing and utilization management, and ultimately decreases patient satisfaction.
A recent survey* found one-third of US Hospitals have denial rates approaching dangerously high levels of more than 10%.
The leading cause: the absence of documentation supporting the medical necessity for acute inpatient stays.
DCCS has helped hospitals to decrease denial rates by improving patient status determination accuracy.
The DCCS process for determining patient status and reducing LOS has helped our clients achieve an average $8.2 million revenue improvement per engagement.
