Using the Milliman Care Guidelines

SUNY Downstate UHB uses guidelines drawn from Evidence-Based Medicine. These same guidelines are used by IPRO, and Managed Care Organizations to make determinations about medical necessity of acute care stay.

Care Management Department staff access these guidelines during concurrent review on line to help assure that UHB patients receive efficient and effective reimbursed care, using CareWebQI the interactive tool that captures and reports on real-time clinical data.

Visit the Milliman Care Guidelines website to learn more about evidence-based knowledge at the point of care:
