Description:
Appropriate allocation of resources is fiscally important in delivering healthcare. Reducing acute hospital admissions is viewed as a key method to curb healthcare costs. Hospital utilisation review (UR) programmes have been shown to reduce utilisation and expenditures[1]. However, there is no evidence that UR improves overall efficiency of resource use. Furthermore, its impact on care delivery and patient outcomes has not been described[2].
