With care coordination by healthcare case managers driving clinical and financial outcomes in population health management, the industry continues to see an increase in case managers—not just in newly launched initiatives but co-located in nursing homes, long-term care (LTC) and assisted living settings. We wanted to see which organizations are embedding or colocating case managers at care sites.

Co-location of healthcare case managers alongside providers continues to be a trend in population health management.

As demonstrated by the above figure, HIN’s 2013 Healthcare Case Management e-survey documented that more than half—53.8 percent—embed or colocate their case managers at care sites.

In additional details about embedded case management, the survey found that 56.8 percent of organizations embed case managers in the primary care practice, and 52.3 percent in hospitals.

Additionally, one survey respondent said that the most notable improvement or innovation resulting from embedded case management is the decrease in avoidable hospital admissions.
