This service offers hospitals access to CAIN clinical networks of utilization review nurses and physicians to address questions of patient status (admit, observe or treat and release). Information is exchanged between the hospital and the CAIN clinical networks. Recommendations are made as to the most appropriate patient status. This all happens through the CAIN web-enabled secure network, so information is safe and protected.
CAIN’s Patient Status Manager assures that the proper status was assigned, which is the first step in effectively managing care. As audits become more and more common, using the Patient Status Manager will give your team the confidence that they are asking the right questions and spotting opportunities for proper documentation and status assignment.
