A Rater's Guide to Responding to a Clinical Review

Everyone with a Health Care Level (HCL) of 3 or higher are required to have a Clinical Review. This review process serves as a quality intervention to ensure that scoring is as accurate as possible and that the Rater utilized best practices while screening. It is important that once a clinical review is completed that the Rater accesses the record to address any questions, corrections, or issues the reviewer may have found while completing the review. This is time-sensitive and should be done at the Rater’s earliest convenience.
