UHA’s Coding Corner | Meet and Greet Visits

We expect this kind of “shopping around” when it comes to other types of purchases, and it’s become more common in healthcare. For example, many expectant parents now interview obstetricians before deciding who they’d like to care for them during pregnancy (and do the same with pediatricians who might care for their children).
