The Care Manager (CM) provides coordination of care for the patient through facilitation/communication and discharge planning throughout the continuum of care.
The CM is a key contributor to the overall financial, quality and clinical performance. The CM supports an outcomes-oriented patient care delivery system, which places the patient at the center of all activities. The CM assesses all patients on their assigned unit within 24 hours of admission to identify needs for discharge and works with the treatment care team, the patient, and the family (or primary care taker) to establish an acceptable discharge plan of care. The CM is a resource for the patient and family to obtain the necessary resources that they may need regarding their care, treatment and discharge.
The CM works with patients to ensure social and psychosocial needs are met, assists with eligibility determinations for social programs and funding sources, and ensures access to community assistance programs if so needed by the patient. A CM provides a positive financial impact to the organization through extensive interaction with physicians, nurses, and other patient care givers in managing length of stay and limited readmissions. The CM offers crisis intervention to patients and families with psychosocial needs and coordinates and facilitates the development of an effective discharge plan of care for all patient populations. The CM also works with the care team to fulfill the goals of the health system by controlling length of stay and readmissions and following isolation protocols to decrease the hospital spread of infection.
