Is Case Management the Best-Kept Secret?

Posted by Stephen Tucknall on Feb 17, 2017 2:45:54 PM

Is case management the best kept secret in healthcare?  With all the new "classifications" of how caseworkers and health care providers interact with their clients and patients such as "care coordination" and "patient advocating" - is the term case management getting lost?

I did a little research into this topic and found a great article written by Dorland Health, a leading integrated media publisher in the healthcare industry, that I wanted to share.  Please check it out below.

Why It’s Important to Be Present for Each Other

Posted by April Freund on Jan 31, 2017 9:00:00 AM

In this age of social media and all the virtual ways we can connect, it’s still important to make sure and be in front of each other on a regular basis.

In college I studied Speech Communication and one particular story told by the instructor really stuck with me through all of these years. The story starts with the instructor talking about a Rolling Stones concert he attended when he lived in LA. The concert was going to be held at the football stadium and the crowd was unbelievably huge. He had a hard time convincing his new wife to go as she cited the traffic, crowds, late night out when she was going to have to go to work early the next day. After much discussion she finally agreed to attend. To avoid some of the traffic issues they decided to arrive pretty early in the afternoon. The instructor described her demeanor as less than happy to be there. As the crowd started moving in and the stadium getting more active he describes a change in her attitude as well as the crowd. There was an electrical feeling in the air as the sound tests were being done and you could hear the roadies tuning and testing instruments. He describes the growing excitement and that by the time the Stones actually came on the stage she was literally jumping up and down and so glad she was there.
