Utilization Management Webinar  

All hospitals, including CAHs, must have a UM/UR Plan that describes the process used to review all services provided by the institution and by the members of the medical staff. In addition to assuring optimal healthcare delivery and positive patient outcomes, sound UM/UR practices are integral to achieving successful results during activities such as RA audits. Experts from the Joffit Group, will discuss the components involved in setting up an efficient UM/UR process and will review CRHC’s Utilization Management Resource for Critical Access Hospitals: a concise, easy-to-use tool for hospital providers and staff that explains the role of UM/UR in various CAH settings including: Inpatient, Outpatient, Observation, and Swing Bed. This resource includes:

  • Key UM/UR Concepts and Examples
  • Regulatory and Audit Impacts (including RAC, MIC, and CERT)
