From its inception, contemporary hospital case management practice has been based on the changes taking place in the healthcare marketplace and the standards of practice.

Conversation for Case Management Transformation

Let the experienced leadership team at PhoenixMed help guide the conversation to help the executive team create a future vision for your case management program.  With competing business priorities and demands on time, executives are looking to experts who can offer timely insights, fresh ideas, and practical wisdom that will help leadership develop care coordination capabilities essential to reap the full benefits of value-based contracts.    Our team can provide essential background, current thinking, and practical strategies to begin transformation from a traditional discharge planning/utilization review department to an enterprise-wide care coordination program that impacts population health.   

 

Case Management Program Assessment

Over the course of a one week engagement, the PhoenixMed team will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the hospital's case management program and the hospital's readiness to embark on a transformation journey to a value-based model.  We will meet with key stakeholders, observe operations, review documents and data, and conduct focus groups with the medical staff to assess the value the organization places on its current program.  We will assess:

  • The organization's knowledge and depth of integration of case management at various levels;
  • Care coordination, utilization review, and counseling service activities including program infrastructure and workflow activities;
  • Transitions of care processes and transitional care programs including daily activities and staffing levels;
  • Access management/gatekeeping activities;
  • Knowledge, skills, and effectiveness of current care managers, utilization review personnel, and counseling team;
  • Clinical resource management strategies and the activities of the utilization review committee;
  • Personnel's ability to access, analyze and integrate data into the case management program; determine whether data analysis findings are used to set goals and quantify clinical and financial improvements;
  • Hospital's ability to quantify and communicate outcomes to clinicians, appropriate facility committees, governing body, and members of the administrative team.
