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.
