Interpreting your PEPPER for utilization review



Improving utilization review through PEPPER analysis

The annual Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) provides a wealth of information to help hospitals to diagnose areas of improvement for a range of hospital functions, particularly utilization review. However, digging through this data can be overwhelming. Many health care professionals may struggle to know where to start.

During this webinar, Dr. Kurt Hopfensperger will review the key elements of the PEPPER that relate to utilization review and provide actionable advice for implementing learnings. He’ll also discuss how to establish an ongoing process to monitor improvements based on actions taken.
