Case Management - Conclusion

aging social care health services term

Case management is a response to the complexity and fragmentation of health and social service delivery systems. While there are common components, the practice of case management varies by setting. Although case managers assist with locating and coordinating services, the range of services they can coordinate and the options that are available will vary widely, depending on where on the care continuum the client is assessed as needing case management assistance. Any case management function reflects the program's financing and directly affects case manager's professional discipline, scope of client care, and manner of blending advocacy and cost containment responsibilities.
