Case Management Certificate

Case management is the fastest growing segment of the healthcare industry. Case managers are needed in all areas of healthcare delivery, HMOs, PPOs, insurance companies, hospitals, home health, etc. With appropriate education and training, all healthcare professionals can become Case Managers.

Students will learn to:

  • Work collaboratively with the patient, physician, family/significant other, and healthcare provider
  • Encourage clients to self-direct care, self-advocate, and make decisions when appropriate and to the degree possible
  • Promote the optimum allocation of healthcare dollars and maximize efficiency in the use of available resources
  • Maintain cost containment in the provision of services and ensure that services are rendered timely and cost-effectively
  • Designate the expenditure of claims dollars and timely claim determinations
