The healthcare industry used to write off home visits as too costly and resource-intensive, but now they’re getting a second look. This week’s Healthcare Business Weekly Update looks at an innovative home visit pilot for Medicaid and dually eligible patients that reduced unplanned hospital admission days by 71 percent in three months.

As programs such as these catch on, the job description of the contemporary healthcare case manager is much more likely to include home visits in 2011 than it did in 2010. These findings and more are included in a just-published downloadable white paper, 2011 Benchmarks in Healthcare Case Management.
