Patient Registration

From:Paula Wilder

Hello everyone!

We were recently told that in order to register Medicare patients, we had to 
actually contact each patient for all the necessary information. When we 
asked questions about specimens, etc. no one had an answer for us.  JCAHO is 
coming to our institution in July.  We were told that we were not in 
compliance at this time and that next week sometime we will need to register 
patients differently.  I just can't imagine contacting each and every 
patient.  Does anyone else have this compliance issue?  Any input would be 
very greatly appreciated.
Thank you!!
