MEDITECH CS AND AUTO CHARGING OBSERVATION HOURS

    Looking for a Meditech CS hospital that is using the ADM  Observation Charge Codes Routine.  We are trying to start using this routine, but the barrier we have come across is that BAR sends each hour of observation as an individual line item to ABS/3M.  So in other words, if there were 36 hours of observation, it would send 36 separate lines to 3M and ABS.  This makes it difficult to code.  Meditech states there is no way around this unless we have a custom made.

    I am looking for an organization to share with me how they have Meditech Observation Charge Code routine set up.  Thank you.
