Transformed Care Management
As healthcare becomes increasingly complex, our patients require more than just medical services. In order to holistically address health needs, our patients and families require assistance navigating health care services, assembling social services, understanding complex medication regimens, adhering to complicated medical instructions, and emotional support. In essence, they require care management. This module provides a discussion of various care management models and practical tips for healthcare organizations to develop (and get paid for) care management that will enhance patient care, reduce provider stress, and improve outcomes.
This course is designed for physicians as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health professionals who are working toward population health management, especially in safety-net settings.
