What is Medical Case Management?
A medical case manager is responsible for coordinating with the ill or injured party and the appropriate healthcare providers to ensure treatment is provided at the right level and time frame. As medical case managers, our goal is help the patient achieve medical rehabilitation.
At CARDINAL LifeCare Consulting, we are 100% committed to helping our clients achieve the desired medical rehabilitation results efficiently and cost-effectively. Our extensive knowledge of injury and illness cases plus our clinical experience uniquely suits us for the role of medical case managers.
- Development of plan of care. After careful evaluation of the individual’s medical condition, it is necessary to form a plan for proper treatment and set goals for recovery.
- Communication with physician and ancillary healthcare providers. Coordinating with health care providers to verify treatment and monitor progress is crucial to keeping on schedule with rehabilitation.
- Coordination for patient’s return to work. Supporting a patient through their return to work helps an injured worker return to work quickly and remain at work safely. A medical case manager can be an important resource in the case of return-to-work disputes and in preventing the injury from repeating itself.
