Targeted case management interventions across the health continuum are reducing health risks in vulnerable populations and taking aim at inappropriate healthcare utilization. The job description of today's case manager is likely to include home visits, crisis management, quality improvement and health coaching — and may increasingly require co-location at the site of care.

To provide essential background on emerging case manager trends, the Healthcare Intelligence Network has assembled responses to the most frequently raised questions regarding case management in a single comprehensive resource. In the Case Management Answer Book Vol. I: FAQs on Risk Reduction, Care Coordination and Co-Location, industry thought leaders provide answers to more than 50 questions on the practicalities of case management, from required skill sets for newly hired case managers to engaging non-compliant patients to supporting a case manager embedded in a hospital emergency room.

This 30-page resource delivers advice from case management leaders at Geisinger Health System, whose successful embedded case management model is being replicated around the country, as well as other organizations that tackle a range of case management topics in an easy-to-read Q&A format.
