Despite challenges ranging from physician and practice buy-in to recruitment and retention, the number of healthcare companies embedding or co-locating case managers in care sites continues to rise.

Responses provided by 153 healthcare organizations revealed that case management presence at primary care sites quadrupled in the last 12 months, from 14 percent in 2011 to 58 percent this year.
