Case Management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive needs while promoting client safety and quality of care.
Case Managers provide holistic support to clients from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Instead of exclusively focusing on health-related issues like chronic illnesses, mental health disorders and comorbidities, they address key social and environmental conditions that influence individuals’ well-being.
Case management serves as a means for achieving client wellness and autonomy through advocacy, communication, education, identification of service resources and service facilitation. The case manager helps identify appropriate providers and facilities throughout the continuum of services.
Case managers work intimately with their clients to develop plans that are properly targeted at the client’s needs. This involves a thorough assessment of the client’s psychosocial triggers, strengths, and personal needs. They typically coordinate their databases of resources and other public or free-of-charge care providers to better help respective clients realize their own potential and evolving personal goals.
Comprehensive case managers assess for a wide range of needs of clients and families including:
Health needs, including mental health issues
Educational or vocational needs
Basic needs such as housing and food assistance
