Medical Case Management

SCM has taken everything we have learn in the Worker’s Compensation arena and applies those same principles and process to non-work-related injuries and illnesses.  We help manage many private medical and trust cases through our medical case management services. Medical case management is a proactive process in which highly skilled, registered nurses collaborate closely with the patient, family, health care providers, and payor to identify and achieve functional and timely outcomes. SCM does this by coordinating health care resources from the intake of a case referral through a patient’s maximum medical improvement. Our experienced nurses manage the process and develop a unique treatment plan for each patient. Here at SCM, we developed our process based on the standards of the Case Management Society of America. Our primary goal is to improve patient outcomes and quality of life while reducing healthcare costs. Improve the Care, Reduce the Cost.

Better Clinical Outcomes

SCM’s experienced field nurse case managers work together with patients, families, and their teams of healthcare providers to develop and implement a comprehensive care plan that addresses the patient’s medical, social, and psychological needs. This approach ensures that patients receive the right care at the right time, which can lead to better health outcomes and fewer hospital readmissions. They also help patients navigate the complex healthcare system, which can result in fewer emergency room visits and hospitalizations

Higher Quality

SCM’s Medical case management can also improve patient satisfaction and quality of life. By providing patients with personalized care and support, our nurse case managers help patients feel more in control of their health and better able to manage their conditions. This leads to better mental health, greater independence, and an overall higher quality of life.
