Is Your Hospital Losing Money Over the Weekend?

The Impact of  Weekend Utilization Review on Reimbursement

Is Your Hospital Losing Money Over the Weekend? White paper from AppriseMD
It’s common to find hospital utilization management teams and physician advisory staffing lower during weekends. Lower staff levels can lead to delays in patient determinations that ensure treatment is at the appropriate level of care (LOC). Staffing issues can also stall discharges, keeping patients in the hospital even though they are ready to leave. Both scenarios can negatively impact quality of care, the patient experience, and hospital resources. Prolonged hospital stays have been linked to an increased risk of hospital-acquired infections and
other complications, while poor triage and discharge processes impact patient satisfaction scores (HCAHPS). All of these have financial ramifications that should be mitigated.
