Developed by the Case Management Society of America (CMSA), this manual provides case managers with the essential tools necessary to successfully support quality patient care within today's complex healthcare system. This updated and revised second edition addresses the role of the case manager and unpacks how to assess and treat patients with complex issues; including those who are challenged with medical and behavioural conditions and poor access to care services, as well as chronic illnesses and disabilities, and require multidisciplinary care to regain health and function. With a wealth of information on regulatory requirements, new models of care, integration of services, and new performance measures, chapters outline the steps needed to begin, implement, and use the interventions of the Integrated Case Management approach.

Written by case managers for case managers, this practical manual presents the CMSA--tested approach toward systematically integrating physical and mental health case management principles and assessment tools. As the healthcare field continues to increase in complexity and given the constantly changing regulatory environment, healthcare workers must know how to integrate those new regulations, describe alternative payment options, and implement requirements for greater patient and family assessment, care planning, and care coordination in their practice.
