The role of case managers in healthcare is to oversee the case management process from start to finish. At CPIMS, our case managers endorse our philosophy of care; providing individual care to individual people. Healthcare case management is an involved role, with healthcare case managers working tirelessly to provide the best patient service possible, maintaining dignity, maximising quality of life and empowering patients to realise their full potential.
What is healthcare case management?
Healthcare case management can be described as the coordination of healthcare services on behalf of an individual. More specifically, the healthcare case management process encompasses every part of the healthcare process; from initial review, through to the end of treatment.
The types of case management services provided by CPIMS include:
- Assessment of need
- Care Coordination
- Vocational rehabilitation
Depending on the situation of each client, some or all of these services may not be required.
The role of case managers in healthcare
The responsibilities of case managers in healthcare range from administrative duties to providing quality care, with a view to meeting individual healthcare needs. Case managers should help to make the rehabilitation process as simple as possible; removing stress from the lives of the client and assisting their family with the pressures of daily life.
The list below illustrates some of the most common duties of CPIMS case managers:
- Co-ordinating care services
- Advocating for individuals and family members
- Managing finances on behalf of the patient and family
- Devising care plans and risk assessments
- Promoting, enabling and implementing rehabilitative processes
- Monitoring long-term needs
While the case manager has administrative duties, they are also involved with direct hands-on patient services; instilling positivity and maximising our client’s potential. By promoting the rehabilitative process, it is possible to help patients to realise their capability; maximise their opportunity of achieving vocational aspirations; and partake in social, leisure and educational activities. Overall, this inspires a positive attitude in the patient and helps to contribute towards their wellbeing.
