Who we are
Under the umbrella of Integrated Health Management, we are a member facing team of interdisciplinary trained clinicians including registered nurses, licensed behavioral health clinicians, dieticians and support staff providing case management, care transition management and other specialized services.
Who we serve
We provide a wholistic care model which involves collaboration with members and their families, caregivers, employer groups and providers. Case Managers use an integrated (physical/mental health) case management model, and a collaborative, relationship-based approach, including members, health care providers and caregivers to assist poly-chronic and high-risk members to improve their health outcomes. Case managers provide a comprehensive, integrated health assessment of member's current situation and status; identify actionable barriers and obtainable goals to achieve optimal self-care management; monitor member's progress toward goals; facilitate the coordination, communication and collaboration among the member's providers; advocate for members and promote self-advocacy; assist members to obtain appropriate quality care within their benefit plan; and identify resources in the community or within the member's natural support system to fill any gaps within their benefit plan.
Our teams use Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques a method which involves asking thoughtful, purposeful questions. Motivational Interviewing helps to both engage and empower the member which can help fuel personal motivation and build the confidence needed to pursue change.
What you will do:
Engage members with medical, mental health and/or substance utilization disorders in services utilizing evidenced-based engagement skills.

Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the member's case management plan and continuously update to ensure goals are progressing and remain pertinent; identify and address barriers to completing goals.
Facilitate communication and coordination among the health care team to minimize fragmentation, eliminate duplication and maximize delivery of appropriate care.
Provide interventions focused on removing the member's barriers to health improvement; promoting positive behavior change using motivational interviewing techniques; and addressing the caregiver's needs in order to stabilize the member's natural support system.
Maintain concise, accurate and timely documentation that supports effective, efficient management of the member and that meets accreditation, contractual and legal requirements.
