Good morning Team! In conjunction with our Case Mgt Dept, I am researching Observation status vs Inpatient admission guidelines for physicians and came across this topic in AHIMA: Observation status or inpatient admission – Guidance for Physicians July 7, 2003 but curious as to if anyone has information that is more current. This is for physician education.
