Health Information Management Suspension of Admitting Privileges

  • Letters are mailed to your office twice monthly notifying you of incomplete records including the number of days post discharge or treatment.

  • The Suspension list is created every two weeks for delinquent records:

    • Any record that is 30 days or older and not complete is considered delinquent.

    • The list is posted at noon every other Tuesday and those physicians on the list will temporarily lose their admitting privileges and surgical posting privileges.

    • Once all the records and dictations are completed, you are removed from the list and all privileges are reinstated.

    • You are encouraged to notify HIM of any vacations or long periods of time you are not available to complete your records so that you are not suspended needlessly.
