Utilization Management Webinar

Experts from the Joffit Group, will discuss the components involved in setting up an efficient UM 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 in various CAH settings including: Inpatient, Outpatient, Observation, and Swing Bed.
