Care management is a set of activities intended to improve patient care and reduce the need for medical and other human services by enhancing coordination of care, eliminate duplication, and helping patients and caregivers more effectively manage health conditions. Service providers are encouraged to communicate with one another so all of the individual and family’s needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This work is done through a Care Manager.
At Catholic Family Center, Care Managers focus on whole health, including; substance abuse, mental and behavioral health, primary care, social support, academic achievement, psycho-social and financial improvement, as well as coordinating activities with providers.
A Health Home is a group of health and community agencies that have agreed to work together to help people with many health issues get what they need to keep them healthier and safer in the community. Each person who joins gets a “care manager.”
This is a way to coordinate care for our Medicaid patients who have complex chronic diseases and mental health challenges. While many Medicaid patients are relatively healthy, there are several groups whose conditions are more severe, requiring support and assistance in the community.
Care Management services at CFC offer linkage to most important resources for individuals and families such as access to food, cleaning supplies, assistance in application for benefits and entitlements, etc... In addition, we provide care coordination and management services for individuals who are struggling with medical, mental, behavioral, and social needs. We support members to maintain connection with providers and receive the help they need.
