I did not know the correct information to use when my wife was being discharged from the hospital. My Patient Advocate provided what I needed to get the outcome I needed.
Definition of Case Management
Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes.
Philosophy of Case Management
The underlying premise of case management is based in the fact that when an individual reaches the optimum level of wellness and functional capability, everyone benefits: the individuals being served, their support systems, the health care delivery systems and the various reimbursement sources.
