The Utilization Review Nurse works in a collaborative, innovative environment where the work of the team is considered an integral part of Community Medical Centers’ strategies for utilization management, patient flow, and length of stay. Housed in the Command Center, the UR nurse reviews for level of care and intensity of service ensuring care is rendered in accordance with policies and regulations utilizing evidence-based software to guide decision making. The UR nurse collaborates with multiple disciplines from admission to discharge, monitoring patient charts and facilitating communication to ensure efficient care is delivered in all cases. Therefore, candidates must have strong communication skills, an eagerness to collaborate with others and ability to work independently.
