Care management is a set of activities intended to improve patient care and reduce the need for medical and other human services by enhancing coordination of care, eliminate duplication, and helping patients and caregivers more effectively manage health conditions. Service providers are encouraged to communicate with one another so all of the individual and family’s needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This work is done through a Care Manager.
At Family and Community Services, Care Managers focus on whole health, including; substance abuse, mental and behavioral health, primary care, social support, academic achievement, psycho-social and financial improvement, as well as coordinating activities with providers.
