Sweeping changes in healthcare law are influencing health care delivery and raising the bar for case management. Across the care continuum, silo-based case management models are evolving to incorporate a patient-centered transitional care component that targets the patient and caregiver. Continuum-based case management practices require effective team collaboration, strong communication skills, and patient-centeredness as key components that ensure integrity in care delivery, patient safety, and smooth care transitions.
