Overview

The world of health care is changing rapidly and so is the role of case management. Whether you are reading or hearing about value-based reimbursement, the Affordable Care Act, the continuum of care, bundled payments, transitions in care, or accountable care organizations — case management is at the center of it all!

Because things are changing so rapidly it can be challenging to stay current and knowledgeable in the issues that most greatly impact your role as a case manager. Reimbursement has changed dramatically, as has utilization management, transitional planning and length-of-stay management. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ payment changes impact readmissions, length-of-stay and the cost of care. Who is in a better place to address these issues than case managers? Finally, how do all these roles come together in a cohesive way that meets the needs of your department and your organization? All these topics and more will be covered in this jam-packed five-part series.
