As a relatively new Patient Care Coordinator (utilization review and discharge planning) in a 15-bed critical access hospital, I am still trying to build a network of peer resources. Am hoping this forum will fill that need. I'm a 30+ year RN with no prior experience in UR/DP.
We do not yet have an EMR, but will be implementing one over the next couple of years. In the mean time, we're still on paper. If any of you have any forms, policies, guidelines, etc, that you'd like to share - I'd be very grateful.
Thank you in advance.

I am the Director of Case Management in a CAH in Ohio. I would be happy to help you as I've been in your shoes. Networking is so helpful and it's been difficult to find other CAH case mgmt/UR.

I am also in your postition, They hired me as the new Utilization Review Coordinator, also Compliance Officer and Infection Control Officer. It is a new position so training is limited, I am in need of guidance. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
