Home-based computer review of hospitals admissions for compliance with Medicare policy and guidelines. A straightforward job IF the submission of the admission H & P, and supporting lab and radiological studies were provided in a timely fashion. A lack of complete clinical data from many hospitals causing inability to make an appropriate decision, and which often required mulltiple calls in an effort to reach the admitting physician for clarification of differential diagnosis..
Workplace culture was to complete a requisite number of reviews per shift.
Hardest part of the job was trying to obtain the necessary clinical information.
Best part of the job was ability to work at home.
What I learned---I'd rather be treating patients.
