Why Case Management?
A continuum of care must be designed to provide engagement, motivation, primary treatment services at the appropriate level and intensity, and support services that will enable an individual to maintain long term wellness while managing life in community. Case management can help to accomplish all the above.
Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive needs. This is accomplished through communication and procuring available resources to promote client safety and quality of care. It engages and coordinates the continuum of pretreatment, primary treatment and after care.
For people who love and care for an individual in recovery, juggling all the aspects of care can be confusing and may become overwhelming. All the coordination of a loved one’s case can be left to the case manager. Having a professional case manager keeps all the up-to-date information and details of care in a centralized location and facilitates communication between all members of the recovery team. Case managers are the hub of the recovery team wheel.
Our case managers handcraft a customized treatment plan and coordinate all aspects of this team, so you and your family member can focus on healing.
Philosophy of Case Management
The underlying premise of case management is based in the fact that when an individual reaches the optimum level of wellness and functional capability, everyone benefits: the individuals being served, their support systems, the health care delivery systems, and the various reimbursement sources.
Case management serves as a means for achieving client and family wellness and autonomy through advocacy, communication, education, identification of service resources, and service facilitation. The case manager helps identify appropriate providers and facilities throughout the continuum of services, while ensuring that available resources are being used in a timely and cost-effective manner to obtain optimum value for both the client and the reimbursement source.
Case management services are best offered in a climate that allows direct communication between the case manager, the client, and appropriate service personnel, to optimize the outcome for all concerned.
