How Stormont Vail Health is improving medical necessity documentation

This webinar is on-demand and can be viewed at your convenience.

Searching through the EHR for clinical information to support a patient's admission and manually compiling the data is a challenging, error-prone and time-consuming process. Many organizations face the risk of lost revenue due to untimely decision-making for appropriate conversion opportunities and/or unnecessary denials, both of which result in dissatisfied patients.

In this webinar, Stormont Vail Health in Topeka, Kan., will share how they've used new technologies to reduce denials, improve medical necessity documentation and enhance utilization review staff productivity.

Attendees will learn how to:
  • Better align care delivery and clinical documentation
  • Assess EHR data sources that would be beneficial in determining medical necessity and priority for patient admissions
  • Identify opportunities to improve existing medical necessity documentation workflows within the EHR
