Utilisation review

Utilisation review (UR) has emerged as a methodology which explores the extent to which resources are appropriately used, systematically applying a set of objective clinical criteria to admissions, bed days and episodes, and assessing the appropriate level of care. The Senate commissioned this scoping exercise to review the UR methodology and its utility. This review assesses the published evidence base, reported experience and the current offer in the market.
