The Care manager oversees care management and coordination of health care services for assigned patients in the primary care practice. The primary responsibilities of the Care Manager RN is to identify patients who will benefit from care management using specific criteria, screen each patient for individual needs and barriers to optimum wellness with standardized tools, track, monitor and coordinate care plans for each of the assigned patients, and ultimately discharge them from care management. Many patients will have multiple co-morbidities and/or psychosocial needs. The Care Manager will develop an effective supportive relationship with the patient/family to facilitate achievement of the health goals. They will interact and collaborate with interdisciplinary care teams, which include physicians, discharge planners, inpatient case managers, referral coordinators, pharmacists, laboratory technologists, social workers, dietitians and other educators and nurses. The Care Manager RN also acts as an advocate for patients and their families, providing links to relevant services to help them gain knowledge of their disease processes and to identify community resources for continued growth toward the maximum level of independence.
