Strategies for Controlling Medical Overutilization
Controlling medical overutilization is much more than saying no. Done effectively, it enables the healthcare system to sustainably provide the resources that best meet the needs of the population it serves.
Effective and appropriate medical utilization management requires commitment and the right infrastructure, including an aggregated dataset, executive and local leadership, governance, adequate staff including nurses, NPs and analysts, and a financial structure that allows for fair sharing of surpluses with those who do the work.
