I have never used these codes together but based on CPT it sounds like you could do the 99401 with the inpatient as long as it is not used in the determination of the E/M level. There would need to be enough documentation for each of them to stand alone.
You can not bill 99401 with another preventive code.
CPT clearly states that 99401-99412 are for reporting counseling/anticipatory guidance/risk factor reduction interventions that are provided at an encounter separate from the preventive medicine examination.
