Free Download: Case Management Trends: More Care Team Integration; Face-to-Face CM Encounters Edge Out Telephonic

With each year, a larger swath of the healthcare industry comes to rely upon the skills of healthcare case managers to influence clinical, quality and financial outcomes. According to the 2017 Case Management Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, the percentage of healthcare organizations enlisting case managers in care management rose from 88 percent in 2013 to 94 percent in 2017. Further, patients are much more likely to encounter a case manager in a provider's office this year than they might have been four years ago. Two-thirds of 2017 respondents embed or colocate case managers alongside care teams today, versus 54 percent in 2013.

Download this free HINtelligence report for more data on the top clinical targets of healthcare case managers; the top means of identifying and stratifying individuals for case management; and the most common locations of embedded or colocated case managers.
