Why Should You Attend:
RN case managers, social workers and case management leaders need to understand the role of the hospitalist, steps to ensure collaboration to ensure compliance with federal regulations, decreasing length of stay, and methods to improve case management outcomes with the role of the hospitalist.
In this session Ms. Cunningham will introduce the role of the hospitalist and the important aspects for staff RN case managers, social workers and case management leaders to ensure effective implementation and sustaining of this critical role. She will also discuss best practices for developing steps to ensure collaboration with this role. Additionally, she will discuss hospital outcomes that can be positively affected by the collaboration of the two roles.
The webinar will focus on not only strategies for aligning these two roles, but the impact they can have on Medicare spending per beneficiary, an important component of value-based purchasing, as well as other health care reform metrics (such as readmissions).

Who Will Benefit:
Bev Cunningham is a founding partner of Case Management Concepts, LLC. She has a 25-year deep working knowledge of case management with specific expertise in denials management, patient flow and the role of the Case Manager and Social Worker in the Case Management process. She has served as a Commissioner on the Commission for Case Management Certification and is a fellow with the Advisory Board. Bev is also the former Vice President of Resource Management at Medical City Dallas Hospital.
She has written a book for hospital case managers—Core Skills for Hospital Case Managers and has written the utilization management chapter in the past two editions of CMSA’s book, Core Curriculum for Case management.
The past twenty years hospitalists have been integrating acute care hospitals with the initial goal of decreasing length of stay. As the role of the hospitalist has evolved there has been an increased attention to collaboration with case managers and social workers to ensure not only a decreased length of stay, but compliance to federal and state regulations, as well as following contractual agreements with commercial payers.
Over the years the role of the hospitalist has become more specialized with expansion in to OB, ICU and pediatrics. These various specialized roles will also be discussed.
For these processes to be optimal and best-practice, there must be strong leadership in both the hospitalist group(s) and the case management department. Some hospitalist groups have not been able to impact hospital outcomes because of the gap of leadership coordination for both the hospitalist group and/or the case management department. Additionally, there are not always hospitalist dashboards to show the outcomes and to allow development of strategies to improve those outcomes not being met.
