Care management includes case management, utilization management and disease management. Care management can help “at-risk” members achieve better health through effective patient management. Effective patient management helps them stick with the behaviors and clinical approaches that have been proven to work.
Care management is for patients on the “not well” end of the spectrum. They need more help than those at the healthy end of the spectrum.
