Why Should You Attend:
Care coordination is one of the key, fundamental roles of the RN case manager and social worker and yet it is often left to the lowest of priorities in our daily work. As a case management professional you must think beyond utilization management and discharge planning and incorporate care coordination into your daily practice. Do you know how to affect a positive outcome in caring for your patients by ensuring that their care is coordinated and facilitated?
You will learn how to apply key strategies for reducing your hospital’s cost and length of stay. In addition you will learn how to appreciate the role of interdisciplinary care rounds in care coordination. You will identify your hospital’s own areas of strength and weakness related to care coordination.
This program will review the elements that most greatly impact on cost and length of stay by focusing on care coordination as one of the key strategies for successful reductions of these metrics. Care coordination, as one of the main roles of the RN case manager, is complex and includes many characteristics that encompass the role. These will be covered as well as those elements that have the greatest negative impact on care coordination. Those that have the greatest positive impact will be discussed in detail. Working with teams to enhance care coordination, as well as rounds and huddles, will be discussed. Participants will walk away with effective strategies for managing their hospital’s length of stay and cost.
Finally, you will understand the role of the RN case manager in care coordination.

Care coordination is one of the four key roles that hospital case managers and social workers perform. The other roles include utilization management, discharge planning, and resource management. Care Coordination is integral to managing cost and length of stay. Nevertheless, it is often overlooked or under-performed. This is sometimes due to workload issues and/or understaffing. Other times it is due to a lack of focus on this area of work. Case management professionals must perform this role in their daily practice. No other department or discipline owns care coordination in the way that we do and so we must understand how best to coordinate care and how to integrate care coordination into our daily practice. We provide leadership in cost and length of stay reduction and care coordination is a fundamental way in which to achieve these outcomes.
