Psychotropic Medication Utilization Review (PMUR)

Medical staff
  • A PMUR is the process STAR Health uses to screen children's psychotropic medications and review them when they fall outside the Parameters.
  • Being outside the Parameters does not mean that the psychotropic medications are harmful for the child
  • Rather, being outside Parameters means that a STAR Health child and adolescent psychiatrist needs to review the case to see how the child is doing and make sure the medications are the best treatment for the child.
