The Case Manager
Peter R Kongstvedt states, “The case manager is consistently challenged with managing fiscal constraints with patient expectations in light of orders and expectations articulated by the care team. This requires a highly skilled individual, certainly not a job for the faint of heart.” The case manager can also play a role in identifying disease prevention strategies.
