Utilization management was the first role applied in acute care case management models. It was first known of as utilization review but has evolved into something much more comprehensive. Today it encompasses elements of resource management and denials management as well. This program will review the role of utilization management as it applies to today’s contemporary case management models. Included will be best-practice suggestions for your practice with tips and strategies for streamlining the process and making it as efficient as it can be. Required compliance for utilization management processes will also be addressed. Lastly, there will be a focus on incorporating the role of utilization management with the other roles of case management: resource management, discharge planning, and care coordination.
Why Should You Attend:
