Introductory Sendout Utilization Analysis
The customized sendout utilization report brings you the value of ARUP’s former ATOP report with enhanced content and clinical applications. Comprising the entire volume of testing you send to ARUP, this analysis identifies your top opportunities for improvement where potential for over- or misutlization exists. Each opportunity is presented with recommendations that can act as a catalyst to optimize test utilization and drive down unnecessary costs. This report is free to all ARUP clients.
We perform an analysis of your test utilization for a 12-month period to identify your top opportunities for improvement and the associated cost savings. This comprehensive inpatient test-utilization analysis report identifies unnecessary duplicate testing, as well as test misutilization and misordering. Under the inpatient prospective payment system, decreasing unnecessary testing means increasing your bottom line. More information can be found on the Consultative Services website.
Evaluating and understanding your outpatient test-utilization in a fee-for-service environment is key in successfully transitioning to future reimbursement models. ARUP's outpatient report can help you align your resources to create decision support and implement improvement measures that benefit the outpatient diagnostic process.

Benchmarking is a powerful tool that identifies areas requiring improvement. Our utilization management benchmarking database houses data from a variety of institutions in the United States. Peer-to-peer comparisons can yield compelling findings and act as a stimulus to modifying test-ordering behaviors. More information can be found on the Consultative Services website.
