October 10 -16 is National Case Management Week, and we would like to recognize and show appreciation for all the Case Managers out there. Case managers do exceptional work with helping with the transition of care, especially within the elderly community.
In a recent study, one in five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital 14-30 days post-discharge. Case Managers play a crucial role in reducing this statistic and helping patients transition into other care. Case Managers do so much, but below we highlighted four ways they can reduce hospital re-admissions.
Case Management Care
Case Managers do so much more than we’ve highlighted above. Often they can be the sounding board for families when discussing the next steps of care. We work closely with Case Managers to help recommend care and resource options. Remember to reach out to us at Sunways to be part of your discharge team so your loved one is set up for success and can avoid readmissions to the hospital!
