Learn how to evaluate your current care management program and determine how to position care management in a proactive way to address admissions, medical necessity, patient throughput, and internal level of care readiness and external transition.
Hospital care managers often function in a reactive process, trying to prove their value by accommodating requests and fixing problems. The result? Delays in care and a frustrating process of not meeting physician, patient, and payer expectations. Too often care management is aligned only as discharge planners and the opportunity to really influence the progression of care in a positive way is missed.
With a focus only on getting the patient out, care managers are often blamed with long length of stay and patients who are not discharged in a timely manner.
But care management is not synonymous with discharge planning! And, as you’ll learn from Tiffany Ferguson in this RACmonitor webcast, care management, used optimally, serves as the influencer to access to care, progression of care and transition of care and therefore can serve as a key advocate to reduce excessive, wasteful, duplicate, or questionable interventions. This essential webcast will show you how to evaluate your current care management program and determine how you can position care management in a proactive way to address admissions, medical necessity, patient throughput, and internal level of care readiness and external transition.
This exclusive RACmonitor webcast is essential for hospitals and health systems to evaluate their current care management programs—to be proactive in addressing admission criteria, medical necessity, patient throughput as well as reviewing internal level of care.
