What We Learned: HIN's Healthcare Case Management e-survey conducted in January 2012 captured the efforts and contributions of case management from 153 healthcare organizations, and also drilled down to trends in embedded case management. According to survey respondents, the top five ways embedded case managers interact with patients and members are:
- Face to face in care setting: 90.9 percent
- Telephone: 79.5 percent
- Home visits: 40.9 percent
- Provider visits: 40.9 percent
- E-mail: 38.6 percent
