Sometimes it’s hard to navigate the complex medical system. When patients move between the emergency room, the hospital and then back to their regular doctor, sometimes important information can get lost.

Patient's eligible for case management services include people with:

  • § 3 or more Emergency Departments visits within the past 6 months
  • § 3 or more Hospitalizations within the past 6 months
  • § Multiple comorbidities such as Asthma, COPD, Heart Disease, Depression, Diabetes and hypertension
  • § New diagnosis of a chronic condition
