Inaccurate Reimbursement Analysis

109 Words1 Page
Overall, incomplete documentation and delinquent medical records cause inaccurate reimbursement and results in inaccurate gross revenue to the hospital. It can have a negative impact on the hospital budgeting and financial planning process for the hospital. It is for this purpose that every healthcare institution should be purposeful on reviewing the accuracy and completeness in clinical documentation, no matter the cost. Even though, for most physicians, most of their time is focused on the actual care of the patient and there is little to no time to devote to extensive documentation, it is imperative to understand patient care includes both the one-to-one attention and the documentation of said treatment.
