Site-of-Care Optimization

Understanding Site-of-Care Optimization

Site-of-care optimization is a utilization management strategy that seeks to lower cost for certain physician-administered or infused drugs by encouraging the use of clinically appropriate, convenient, lower-cost sites or alternative settings of care. Successful implementation of a site-of-care optimization program requires identification of clinically appropriate sites based on patient characteristics. 

Increasingly, payers are turning to site-of-care optimization as a strategy that reduces costs and maintains quality.
