To Err is Human…and Deadly!
A few years ago a seminal report was published by the Institute of Medicine. It concluded that medical errors caused 100,000 patient deaths per year. 90% of those deaths were due to procedural failures at medical institutions.
We all know that being an in-patient in a hospital can be dangerous. Competent, thorough utilization review will decrease the number of patients who are admitted, lowering the risk to your group health members and workers’ compensation claimants. In turn, your programs spend less money.
