Case management as a tool for clinical integration

Adv Pract Nurs Q. Summer 1998;4(1):9-15.


Case management has evolved to meet the challenges of contemporary health care. As an effective strategy to promote clinical integration within health care systems, case management brings together population and individual approaches to development and coordination of evidence-based, outcome-focused health, disease, and illness management programs and services. A three-level prevention-focused model for health care management across the continuum of care is presented.
