Sparta Community Hospital’s Quality Spotlight Award for this month goes to the Pre-Certification Team!  The Quality Spotlight is awarded to the department that has demonstrated achievement and improvement of key processes and performance.

For the last 9 months, the Pre-Cert Team has been able to decrease the number of patient write-off’s from .31% to .26% of gross patient revenue.

Pre-Certification is important because it not only ensures that we are getting paid for services rendered, but it ensures that patients are able to receive appropriate care at the appropriate time.
