Who we are Case Managers work within a team of interdisciplinary trained and licensed clinicians including registered nurses, licensed behavioral health clinicians, dieticians and support staff providing case management, care transition management and other specialized services. We are a member facing team and are under the division of Integrated Health Management.
Who we serve We provide a holistic model which involves collaboration with members and their families, caregivers, employer groups and providers. Case Managers use an integrated (physical/mental health) case management program and a collaborative, relationship-based approach, to assist poly-chronic and high-risk members to improve health outcomes. We utilize a comprehensive, whole person health assessment of member's current situation and status, identify actionable barriers and obtainable goals to achieve optimal self-care management, and monitor members’ progress toward goals. We facilitate coordination, communication, and collaboration among the members’ providers to advocate for members, while promoting member long term self-management and advocacy. We actively assist members to obtain appropriate quality care within their benefit plan and identify resources in the community or within the member's natural support system to fill any gaps within their benefit plan.
Our teams use Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques, a method which involves asking thoughtful, purposeful questions. Motivational Interviewing works by activating the members’ own motivation for change, which can empower, and fuel personal motivation and confidence needed to pursue change.
What you will do:
Engage members with medical, mental health and/or substance utilization disorders in health support services utilizing evidenced-based engagement skills.
Conduct initial holistic health assessment of member's current conditions, situation and needs and perform ongoing evaluations. Assessment will include evaluating the members’ social determinants of health (SDOH) and cultural influences on health care practices.
Collaborate with the member, caregivers, and providers to develop a member centric case management plan that addresses barriers and promotes improved health outcomes.
Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the member's case management plan and continuously update to ensure goals are progressing and remain pertinent; identify and address barriers to completing goals.
Facilitate communication and coordination among the health care team to minimize fragmentation, eliminate duplication, and maximize delivery of appropriate care.
Provide interventions focused on removing the members’ barriers to health improvement, promoting positive behavior change using motivational interviewing techniques, and addressing the caregiver's needs in order to stabilize the members’ natural support systems.
Maintain concise, accurate and timely documentation that supports effective, efficient management of the member and that meets accreditation, contractual and legal requirements.
What you will bring:
Registered Nurse or Master's/Doctoral degree in health or human services related field (e.g., Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, etc.) (Required)
