This webcast originally aired as a live webinar co-sponsored by Seattle Children’s Hospital and AACC on February 4, 2014. The goal of a rationally designed test utilization management program is to get appropriate tests to the patients who need them. During this program, Dr. Geoffrey Baird describes utilization management tools or interventions that can be used, in both inpatient and outpatient settings, to curb overutilization and target testing to the appropriate populations. After viewing this program, you will be able to: provide three reasons why clinical laboratory tests are overutilized; describe three adverse outcomes of test overutilization; and implement three strong utilization management interventions.
