Product Description

Here Is How You Can Build An Effective Case Management Team!

In an era of health care reform, value based purchasing and changes in payment, case managers must take a hard look at the infrastructure of their departments, particularly as they relate to the roles and functions performed by the nurse case managers and social workers. Since it may be difficult to obtain additional resources at this time in healthcare, it is important to re-visit your roles and functions to ensure that they are in sync with the current healthcare landscape and the needs of your organization. Whether you work in an Accountable Care Organization, or are thinking of joining one, the case management staff must function with a focus on the continuum of care and the transitions therein.  The roles performed by the case management staff are the first step toward defining a contemporary department that meets today’s needs.

Join now for this 60-minute power packed event presented by an expert speaker who will give you an understanding of the contemporary roles and functions performed by case managers and social workers in the acute care setting. and also the mechanism for integrating the role of the social worker.
