After admission, patients should be assessed daily to determine if they are still in need of inpatient care. CMI Case Managers can review a case at any point in the admission to assist in the concurrent review. We will utilize your standardized tools for these reviews in order to maintain consistency with your process.
Concurrent reviews by CMI will provide an objective, assessment of the continued medical necessity for admission. This can facilitate reduced length of stay, reduced avoidable days and help establish an appropriate discharge plan. The perspective of a third-party concurrent review can also facilitate discussion with attending physicians regarding through-put that might otherwise be more challenging based on internal concurrent reviews. CMI concurrent reviews can serve as a second opinion to support the on-site Case Manager, or to serve in a primary role when the on-site Case Manager is unavailable.
