The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new reality… and new challenges for hospitals as they look to the future. The financial strain on hospitals is severe, and many hospitals have had to resort to furloughs and layoffs. As a Utilization Management (UM) leader, you may have been asked to make some difficult staffing decisions and now are faced with the question of how to face increasing challenges with fewer resources.
Utilization Management is on the “front-line” of the hospital’s revenue cycle and plays a critical role in your hospital’s financial health. In other words, “failure is not an option.” Achieving more with less is not an aspirational goal but a question that needs to be answered to ensure the hospital's survival.
