The RN Care Manager collaborates with the interdisciplinary team to implement the plan of care and transition strategies, ensuring the achievement of desirable patient outcomes, appropriate length of stay, efficient utilization of resources, increased patient and family involvement, and patient/staff/family education. Implementation is accomplished through patient assessment, monitoring of the plan of care, review activities, coordination with the interdisciplinary team and any outside third-party payers, communicating with physicians, performing utilization management activities to avoid denials, reduce avoidable delays and control costs where possible, and by facilitating continuity of care across settings.
