Case management is a collaborative process during which a case manager assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes.
A Social Worker collaboratively assesses the needs of the client and the client’s family, and when appropriate, arranges, coordinates, monitors, evaluates, and advocates for a package of multiple services to meet each client’s complex needs. A Social Work Professional can collaboratively address many requisite functions.
Among these are the following:
- Psychosocial Assessment/Planning/Intervention
- Case Facilitation
- Patient and Family Counseling
- Crisis Intervention
- Quality of life Improvement
- Resource Brokering
- Referral/Development Discharge Planning
- System Integration
