The CDC currently reports that 117 million people in the US have 1 or more chronic diseases, and one in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions. 86% of healthcare spending in the US goes to treat chronic diseases, and seven of the top 10 causes of death are for chronic diseases. 

The wide spectrum of current stakeholder initiatives to achieve a triple or quadruple aim in healthcare objectives require that the needs and resources involved with chronically ill patients and their families be addressed and supported on the front lines by case managers and social workers. The role of case management in healthcare settings is continuously evolving to meet the needs of patients and manage the quality, financial, and legal risks health systems, provider networks, purchasers and other stakeholders face.

The complexities that face case managers and social workers in this regard continue to escalate. An update on real-world practical best-practice approaches for case managers and social workers is essential in order for them to best succeed in serving their chronically ill patients and the objectives of their healthcare organizations.

Please join us Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 at 1 PM Eastern as The Center for Case Management's Karen Zander provides an insightful, practical and highly instructive presentation in the HealthcareWebSummit event: Chronic Conditions and Illnesses: What Case Managers and Social Workers Need to Know to be Helpful.
