Improving patient outcomes

A case manager helps patients work with their support and health care delivery systems –
including care providers, employers and various payer sources – to achieve optimal wellness.

The role of the case manager includes collaborating with the entire health care team to assess, plan, implement, coordinate, monitor and evaluate the options and services to meet patients’ health needs. The program prepares registered nurses and medical social workers to sit for national case manager certification.
