The purpose of the Case Management program is to be the patient advocate, empower patients and families by providing them with information to make informed healthcare choices, and provide information on important topics, such as medicare benefits, advance directives, and community resources.
The case manager coordinates the clinical team consisting of the patient, patientís family or primary caregiver, physician and other medical staff to establish goals and manage the healthcare outcome of the patient. Ultimately, assisting the patient to move seamlessly through their continuum of care and achieving good outcomes for everyone involved.
At Madison County Memorial Hospital, our focus is to ensure high quality of care. This ranges from medical record documentation through patient discharge. The case manager is actively involved with discharge planning and insuring that the patients receive appropriate care and that they are discharged in a safe manner. We anticipate your healthcare needs and initiate discharge planning from the moment you are admitted to our hospital.
