The effectiveness of Case Management and Disease Management are linked to our Health Data Analysis, as well as, our ability to put in place ongoing triggering mechanisms that identify patients who would benefit from Care Management.
Through our Case Management Department, we systematically and proactively identify high-risk patients and assess opportunities to coordinate and manage total care. Medical, psychosocial, cultural, nutritional, spiritual, and personal needs of the individual are addressed especially those who are at high risk for complications related to chronic disease.
