[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of the research presentation is to enhance professional nurses' understanding of case management.  The effect that health care delivery may have on patient outcomes will be discussed. Methods: This is a non-experimental, retrospective research study that examined the relationship of two case management models and patient outcomes.  Sample included a non probability sample of 700 pediatric patients in two separate acute care facilities.  
Results: Analysis of results indicated that length of stay at one hospital was statistically significantly shorter than the other.   Hospital readmission rate within 30 days of discharge with same diagnosis was not statistically significant.
Conclusion: More research is necessary, however, this study does serve as a foundation for further case management research.  This is one of the first replicable studies that examines the relationship between case management practice and patient outcomes.
