Utilization Management Nursing
How to Become a Utilization Management Nurse
Utilization management nurses work behind the scenes to maximize the quality and cost efficiency of healthcare services. Through regular reviews and audits, they ensure that patients receive the care they need without burdening the healthcare system with unnecessary procedures, ineffective treatments or overlong hospital stays. Utilization management nurses also help insured patients to make informed decisions about their health care by educating them on the benefits and limitations of their Medicare, Medicaid or private health care coverage.
