Provider-Delivered Care Management is a model of care management delivered in the context of the doctor-patient relationship, which extends care management services into the clinical setting. Provider-Delivered Care Management is delivered by a highly qualified care manager and a clinical team.
The care manager works in the physician practice, or with the practice via their affiliated physician organization, to provide care that's personalized and focused on the whole patient. In addition to R.N.s, clinical team members may include nutritionists, certified diabetes educators, M.S.W.s, or pharmacists. Because these health care professionals are directly affiliated with the patient's primary care physician, services are integrated and coordinated.
