InterQual® Ambulatory Care Planning Criteria
Evidence-based criteria for payers and providers who want to identify the appropriateness of ambulatory interventions.
Evidence-basedcriteria to support ambulatory care decisions
Ambulatory care planning criteria to assess appropriateness of interventions
Identify the appropriateness of ambulatory interventions with comprehensive criteria across ambulatory care. Best evidence-based recommendation is suggested within a single workflow according to the clinical scenario presented and appropriate sequencing of care alternatives, as well as screening for prior conservative treatments, which is specified where applicable.
Intuitive Q&A format to simplify review workflows
The intuitive Q&A format supports efficient review workflows across care categories and enables use by non-clinicians in payers’ provider portals. Includes regimen therapy, step therapy, and failed treatments within a single algorithm, as well as setting of care guidance and length of stay benchmarks.
Evidenced based and peer reviewed for reliable guidance
Produced using a rigorous development process based on the principles of evidence-based medicine (EBM) to help ensure accuracy, avoid bias, and give you complete confidence in the underlying guidance the criteria provide. Limited evidence recommendations provide transparency for emerging areas of treatment and support the need for secondary review.
