This webinar will assist the leader in understanding priorities and the most opportune way to implement best practice in their department. It will also enable the leader to understand true collaboration, with physicians, physician advisors, payers and other care providers in the hospital.

The role of the case management leader is one of the most difficult positions in any healthcare setting. The attractive things about a leadership role in case management also makes it one of the most challenging. The implementation of value-based reimbursement by payers, starting with Medicare, sets the scene for a case management department that must straddle the reimbursement system—payment per contractual agreement, provider-risk payments (such as bundled payment), payment for value and combinations of each of these. Additionally, what Medicare does, other payers seem to follow. Case management leaders are expected to have a skill set that ranges from clinical knowledge and expertise, to knowledge of healthcare finances and reimbursement, to leadership and strong, effective management skills.
The case management leader’s leadership and management skills are critical for managing staff, departmental budget, ensuring compliance to state and federal regulations, staff management and development, and engagement in value-based reimbursement models. The combination of limited resources, coupled with an often-middle management role, and a requirement of a wide range of skills and knowledge, all add up to a complex and difficult job. In addition, the leader must stay current in all issues related to case management and often answer to senior leaders who do not completely understand the roles and value that case management can bring to an organization. With value-based reimbursement, the case management leader must not only ensure best practice operations for today, but also strategize for best practice operations for the future. What happens in case management outcomes today, is impacting potential value-based reimbursement penalties in the future.
