Denial Rates Getting Dangerous?


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.

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.
