Does anyone have a mapped process for patients needing in-patient care from clinics/offices/urgent care centers that bypass ED registration and evaluation. It appears that patients are sent to ED for admission although the decision already made by the providers presumably to avoid pre-authorization. Do they always need pre-authorizaion.
