Case Managers are licensed nursing professionals responsible for coordinating continuum of care and discharge planning activities for a caseload of assigned patients. Major responsibilities include coordinating all facets of a patient's admission/discharge; performing utilization review activities, including review of patient charts for timeliness of services as well as appropriate utilization of services; and ensuring optimum use of resources, service delivery, and compliance with external review agencies' requirements. Case Managers act as consultants to the clinical team, service lines, and other departments regarding patient assessment and patient care and participate in program development and quality improvement initiatives. In their role, Case Managers, by applying guidelines and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, influence and direct the delivery and quality of patient care. A hospital-based case management system has as its primary goal to ensure the most appropriate use of services by patients and, toward that end, to avoid duplication and misuse of medical services, control costs by reducing inefficient services, and improve the effectiveness of care delivery. Objectives are to facilitate timely discharge; prompt, efficient use of resources; achievement of expected outcomes; collaborative practice; coordination of care across the continuum; and performance/quality improvement activities that lead to optimal patient outcomes. A Case Manager differs from other roles in professional nursing/health care practice in that it is not intended to provide direct patient care; rather, a Case Manager will be assigned to specific patients to ensure that the medical services and treatments required are accomplished in the most financially and clinically efficient
