Patient Advocacy:
CM – A Proven Strategy

Because hospital case managers (HCM) coordinate the continuum of care throughout the patient's entire hospital stay, care management in the acute care setting is a strategy proven to better meet patients' needs and improve their treatment outcomes than traditional hospital care that is provided without benefit of case coordination.

  Improving Patient Care...  

Pt. Advocacy: IT Improves Pt. Care

Information technology (IT) is used to improve patient care by integrating;

  • Medical records management
  • Workflow management
  • Decision support
  • Clinical information systems
  • Results reporting
  • Pharmacy management tools

IT must develop stringent policies to protect patient privacy, follow all HIPAA regulations, and ensure that information dissemination and access are fully HIPAA compliant.
