Case managers working inside patient-centered medical homes and accountable care organizations are taking on larger roles in primary care. About half of healthcare organizations embed or co-locate case managers at points of care, according to a new market research by HIN.
Thinking about adding a case manager to a primary care team? Assembling case manager criteria and finding the right practice are just a few steps that should be taken before embedding a case manager. This new infographic from the Healthcare Intelligence Network outlines top sites for ECMs, tools, protocols and workflows and typical duties of ECMs, drawing from responses from our 2012 Trends in Embedded Case Management survey.
Among the data points presented in this infographic are:
- Top care sites for ECMs, such as primary care practices and clinics;
- Ten steps to take before embedding a case manager;
