Home Healthcare Case Management

What is it... Why is it Important?

Home Healthcare case management is a key healthcare element. Healthcare case management focuses on high-quality care and patient-centered decision-making, while supporting responsible and prudent use of healthcare dollars.

While different approaches to healthcare are being discussed and evaluated at local, state and federal levels, at its core, case management provides a cooperative effort between an individual, their family, their health care providers, potential third party payers including insurance companies, and a professional case manager. Healthcare case management includes planning, health assessment, coordination of care, and advocacy to meet all healthcare needs.
