Revenue Cycle

Revenue Cycle Institute posts free monthly tool

Recovery Auditor Report, October 4, 2012

Each month the Revenue Cycle Institute publishes a free sample tool or form for readers. This month’s tool—an article that looks at understanding the difference between inpatient and observation—is a convenient resource for identifying cases of one-day admissions in which documentation did not support medical necessity and observation care would have been more appropriate.
