" Having been involved in hospital Utilization Review for over 10 years on the commercial insurance side and having worked as a surgeon, I understand the frustrations and challenges felt by hospitals in dealing with Utilization Review. I knew that there was a better way to support hospitals and created AppriseMD to meet hospital needs. "

APPRISEMD CASE STUDY: Chest pain, non-cardiac inpatient stay denial overturned

Chest pain is one of the most common ER diagnoses. For those patients who require hospital admission, getting the admission status correct and paid by the insurance company can be tricky.

Chest pain cases that are found to be due to causes other than frank acute coronary syndrome can often be difficult for inpatient level of care approval. We believe that these cases often involve significant hospital resources as well as significant treating physician concern. Clear and honest discussions about the admitting clinicians’ concerns, plan of care, and resources used can help get to the most appropriate level of care.
