Communicating Your Value: The Case Manager's Guide

As the complexity of healthcare systems grows, the ability to effectively navigate and coordinate care has become increasingly important. Case management is critical in ensuring the optimal delivery of services and support to patients. However, many case managers find it difficult to articulate and advocate the true value they bring to the healthcare industry as a whole and to their patients/clients. Recognizing that this issue needed to be addressed, the Case Management Society of America and The Center for Case Management have joined forces to create a position paper that begins to address this complex issue.
