Over the years, both doctors and hospitals have been given a fair amount of discretion to determine whether a patient should be admitted to the hospital or treated as an outpatient and placed in observation status. Hospitals often leave it up to a physician’s clinical judgment as to whether to admit a patient.
But now lines are being drawn, and the decision to admit someone relies less upon a physician’s inclinations and discretion, and more upon a specific rule.
Soyring Consulting provides managerial and operational consulting services to healthcare facilities of all sizes, including For-profit, Not-for-profit, Community, University, and Faith-based facilities and systems. Two of our key areas of focus are Chart Audits & Clinical Records Review and Appeals & Denials Consulting.
