This practical, "hands-on" guide includes vital information every case manager and administrator of a case management program need to be successful. A useful resource for working in the changing face of healthcare, it addresses case managers in all settings with an emphasis on nurse case managers and their role in providing patient care and containing costs. Focusing on the "nuts and bolts" aspects of case management, it discusses the operations of case management programs based on the authors' first hand experiences.
    • Case Management Tip boxes in each chapter highlight important tips and provide easy access to this information.
    • Case studies in several chapters address possible situations the case manager may confront along with the most effective solutions.
    • Key points at the end of each chapter summarize pertinent information.
    • Appendices provide extensive examples of forms and multi-disciplinary action plans used in various healthcare settings.
    • Six new chapters have been added on Utilization Management (Chapter 5), Transitional Planning (Chapter 6), Disease Management (Chapter 7), Application of Legal Concepts in Case Management Practice (Chapter 17), Ethical Issues in Case Management (Chapter 18), and Internet Resources and Case Management (Chapter 19).
    • Content on Financial Reimbursement Systems has been expanded to cover community case management issues such as the new community reimbursement systems for ambulatory, home, and long-term care.
    • Information on community-based models is covered in more detail in response to growth in this area — including managed care, telephonic, rehabilitation, sub-acute, and long-term and emergency department case management.
    • The chapter on Skills for Successful Case Management has been expanded to include a discussion of additional skills such as clinical reasoning, cost-effectiveness, and negotiation among others.
    • Content on Developing Case Management Plans has been updated to include more content on community plans and a detailed review of the types of case management plans, including algorithms.
