Have you ever considered pursuing a career in case management? It’s one of the fastest growing career paths in healthcare today. However, it might not be the first job that comes to mind when most people imagine themselves working in a healthcare setting. In the latest episode of the Medix Impact Podcast, we shine a spotlight on this critical and often overlooked career path.
According to the Case Management Society of America (CMSA), case management can be defined as, “a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote patient safety, quality of care, and cost effective outcomes.”
In short, case managers help patients and their loved ones navigate the often confusing world of healthcare. These individuals help to educate and support those in need of care, with the goal of optimizing outcomes for patients and providers.
