This book is the first comprehensive text on utilization management in the clinical laboratory and other ancillary services. It provides a detailed overview on how to establish a successful utilization management program, focusing on such issues as leadership, governance, informatics, and application of utilization management tools. The volume also describes ways to establish utilization management programs for multiple specialties, including anatomic pathology and cytology, hematology, radiology, clinical chemistry, and genetic testing among other specialties.
