Available October 2017

Dramatic changes are occurring in healthcare as pay-for-quality and performance improvement continue to drive innovations in care delivery. One of the changes that is fast becoming a critical outcomes driver for provider organizations is population health management. While this new model has been demonstrably effective at achieving better patient outcomes at a lower cost, case managers need resources and guidance on how to approach an overhaul to their program.

Case Management Guide to Population Health: Management Across the Continuum of Care is a comprehensive playbook for ensuring the effectiveness of a population health program. This resource is designed to help case management and other healthcare professionals examine social determinants of population health, gauge the sustainability of population health modules in case management, and measure case management outcomes.

Authored by Case Management Society of America President Mary McLaughlin-Davis, this book offers personalized insight into the history of case management and the population health evolution in addition to providing factual guidance for the future from a respected case management authority.

This book will help you:

  • Assess your readiness to transition to population health
  • Identify key stakeholders in population health initiatives 
  • Identify the five social determinants of population health
  • Explain how patient preferences and choices are centric to population health
  • Implement a process improvement strategy to include case management into a population health initiative
