Observation Volumes Continue to Stress Hospitals
Show Notes Chapter Markers

What are your observation volumes doing to your bottom line? How much care do these patients get compared to your inpatients?

If your facility is like most facilities, the billing status does not dictate the care provided; it just dictates the reimbursement you can expect to obtain. Worse yet, it does not leverage the patient’s insurance benefits correctly. 

Join us during the next live edition of Monitor Mondays as Mary Beth Pace reports on what should and could be done with the insurance companies that are dictating billing status, no matter the care provided to their card holders. Listen and learn as Pace discusses how her organization is taking on this mission to care for patients.
