Post-reform redesign of clinical care delivery and supporting reimbursement models reflects the healthcare case manager's dual roles as care coordinator and utilization manager. Case manager work locations, job focus and caseloads are evolving in response to these shifts in the healthcare landscape.
Utilizing metrics and accountability and collaborating between utilization management, case management and medical affairs are just a few case management strategies. This new infographic from the Healthcare Intelligence Network outlines case management keys to success, responsibilities, targeted conditions, challenges and average caseloads, drawing from responses from our Case Management in 2012 survey.
