Many care managers occupy a uniquely challenging space, operating on limited and scattered information about the members they are assigned to help. They must quickly collect whatever information they can find about a member and confirm everything in direct conversation with the member or their care team. They then use their own knowledge, experience, and connections to guide members through this complex system to better health. Working with limited access to clinical data, using systems that don’t talk to one another, care managers are forced to recreate a lot of documentation that already exists elsewhere. This redundant documentation causes additional issues with accuracy and timeliness.
This webinar will focus on best practices, potential technology solutions, and overall education on the topic of interoperability and its effects on effective care management.
