Further information

Editorial

This webinar will review contemporary, best practice, case management models including descriptions of the two most commonly used models, the key differences between the models, as well as how they should be designed and structured. The webinar will also discuss the steps needed to re-engineer a case management department and tips for identifying the best model for your organization.
 

Objectives

No hospital can afford to remain stagnant in an environment that seems to be changing at a lightening pace. While the Medicare programs had remained fairly constant for many years, CMS now routinely changes the penalty and reimbursement structure in addition to adding new expectations such as the Two-Midnight Rule, and other similar rules and measures. Nevertheless it seems that the case management department often seems to be the last department to be up-dated or enhanced to meet the new challenges imposed by the Affordable Care Act and Value-Based Purchasing.

Whether introduced in the inpatient, outpatient, or any other setting across the continuum of care, case management models can be adapted to meet the goals of quality patient care in a fiscally responsible manner. Selection of the most appropriate model will depend on the needs of the organization, the available resources, and the expected goals and outcomes.

This webinar will review contemporary, best practice, case management models. This will be followed by the pros and cons of each model and how the department might be designed to accommodate each model. The best practice staffing rations for each model will be discussed as they apply to the roles of the RN case manager and the social worker as well as strategies for optimizing existing resources.

This webinar will also provide you with the tools that you will need to identify the changes or upgrades you may need to make in your own case management department.
