Another factor not mentioned is the contract language. House of economic negotiations can all go down the drain it the contract language regarding pre-certification, utilization review, and medical record access puts the hospital in a defensive position requiring investment of excessive resources to meet contract lanaguage requirements. In my experience, hospital contract negotiators fail to consider the hours expended by hospital staff members to meet payer demands. Contract addendums spelling out these processes must be negotiated along with financial considerations.
