2021 DRG Denials
We're getting increasing numbers of DRG Denials (for diagnoses such as Sepsis, Encephalopathy, Respiratory Failure, Malnutrition, AKI etc..)
We are trying to articulate the increasing demand on the CDI team. We have a few CDI who are specifically employed to write our responses to the denials.
I am interested in hearing from you about you volume of denials relative to the discharge volumes at your hospital. (For example, you're getting 20-25 denials per week, and discharge approximately 1500 patients per month)... or however you can describe it to me. Any trended data you have on this would be very appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
