Case Management at Down East Community Hospitalis a collaborative, multidisciplinary process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors and evaluates the options and services required to meet an individual’s healthcare needs. Effective communication and available resources are utilized to promote quality, cost-effective care.
Case Management begins on admission and is on-going through discharge. Newborns through geriatric patients are served by our case management staff. Our case managers coordinate the clinical goals with the patient’s goals and manage the financial and quality outcomes of the care provided.
Referrals for visiting nurse services, skilled rehabilitation, nursing facility placement, and third party payor clinical reviews are daily functions of the case management department.
The Case Management department is available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm with a call system for after hours and weekends.
