SHORT COURSE IN INTEGRATED CASE MANAGEMENT AND ICD10 CODING

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Where physicians are involved in case management, they coordinate

such elements as referrals to consultants, specialists, hospitals, ancillary

providers and services. This is intended to eliminate inappropriate

utilisation of facilities and resources, fragmented services and to

provide continuity of services and intensity of services appropriate to

the patient's needs over time.



Case management involves delivering care across traditional

professional boundaries. This means that care teams must work

together as doctors and nurses, specialist doctors and primary care

doctors, and other combinations of clinical caregivers. Turf battles and

power struggles between and within professional groups must be

broken down to enable collaboration for the patient's best interest.

Therefore, managed care is the broad coordination of patient care and

collaboration with various care providers to ensure the appropriateness

of the treatment and the cost thereof. This includes peer reviews and

utilisation reviews of drugs and equipment, facilities and other

resources such as laboratory tests.


WHO SHOULD ENROL
