This community hospital, in the heart of San Francisco, is actively interviewing RN Case Managers to support its Utilization Review process. This hospital, well-known for its dedication and long service to the communities of the Bay Area, has recently undergone an expansion to fulfill its missions. The UR Nurse will get to work with operations leaders from many different functions of this integrated health care system, supporting each.
Reporting to the RN Director of Care Management, Risk, and Patient Safety, the Hospital Utilization Review UR Nurse will work with a large, multidisciplinary team of Inpatient Certified Case Managers (CCM) and Ambulatory / Outpatient Case Managers to evaluate the hospitals resource use. The Case Manager / Utilization Review Nurse will also get to work alongside UR and CM specialists from the Health Plan to identify areas where shared resources and workflow processes can be improved or better utilized.
Though Concurrent Review will be the primary activity, the Utilization Review / Case Management RN will also get to lead Prospective and Retrospective Reviews in certain situations. You’ll perform on-site, virtual, and telephonic assessments across the entire continuum of care to plan and coordinate the highest quality of care with regards to both compensability and medical necessity.
One of the most important aspects of the Nurse of Utilization Review and Case Management’s role, will be working collaboratively with members of the health plan and hospital, supporting the patients’ families, and interfacing with external stakeholders to help create the best possible outcomes. As the Health Plan continues to add members, and the hospital begins serving a larger part of the community, compassionate care from Case Managers and UR Nurses will make all the difference in establishing the health systems reputation.
