Abstract:
Poster Presentation: This presentation will address how a Community Case Management Program was developed and implemented and show the positive outcomes for both the community and the hospital. Ten years ago after a review of literature, ER admissions and re-admissions, plus feedback from patients/families and physicians, Poudre Valley Hospital recognized the need for a Community Case Management Program. The Case Management Program was developed to accommodate any person from Larimer County that needed medication management, prescription management, equipment management and education at no cost to the client. The program was developed with a Masters prepared Clinical Nurse Specialist and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker to meet the needs of this cliental. During the years outcomes have been achieved that show a remarkable decrease in ER admissions, costs to the facility and patient satisfaction with the program. Individuals are referred to Case Management if they have: 1) Confusion with medication management or treatments; 2) Complex diagnoses needing additional education regarding their medical conditions; 3) Chronic conditions that have potential for complications (e.g., CHF, COPD, diabetes); 4) Frequent ER visits or hospitalizations; 5) Poor coping skills; 6) Inadequate family or support system; 7) Caregivers who demonstrate high stress; 8) Insufficient financial resources; 9) Frequent missed appointments; 10) Frequent visits for unnecessary problems; 11) Ineligibility for home care Community Case Managers; 12) Provide a comprehensive client assessment in the home; 13) Promote increased patient competence and coping through treatment plans that include education and referral to other necessary resources; 14) Provide periodic oversight of clients; 15) Develop and strengthen support networks for the clients; 16) Assist the client to utilize the health care system appropriately; and 17) Provide free service to clients who might otherwise not be eligible for assistance.
