Utilization Management

Inpatient Approval

When you need to go into the hospital, your doctor will work with the Utilization Management team to ensure you receive the right care in the right place at the right time. While you are in the hospital, one of our nurses will review your case and assist with discharge planning or approve additional inpatient hospital days, if necessary.

Disease Management

You have many things to keep track of when you are living with a chronic condition. Our disease management programs can help you manage your condition and help you to prevent or delay complications. Our nurses are available to provide information and assist you in managing asthma, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart disease and other conditions.
