Selecting discharge source
The table only shows patients discharged from a single source setting at a time. You can select between Inpatient, Outpatient, or Skilled Nursing by clicking the selector as shown in the following image.
A hospital will have claims for Inpatient and Outpatient. A SNF will have Skilled Nursing claims, and possibly Outpatient.
