They’re called case managers, nurse navigators, or something else, and they’re showing up in primary care practices, hospital emergency rooms, and even long-term care facilities. We’ve watched with interest the emerging trend of the colocated healthcare case manager and created a video that presents the latest industry benchmarks on this population health management strategy as well as a look at how Geisinger Health System, Bon Secours Health System and others are colocating case managers at points of care.

While the practice is relatively new, these organizations are reporting dramatic reductions in hospital readmissions, length of stay and patient cycle times, among other benefits. We invite readers to share how an on-premise case manager is affecting care delivery and healthcare spend.
