The Case Manager’s Handbook has been my “go to” guide throughout my case management career. It is a source of foundational knowledge for the case manager, as well as up-to-date information about industry trends that influence current practice. As case managers play an increasingly important leadership role across the continuum of care, it is not only important to understand the drivers of decision-making at the bedside, but also at the organizational and industry level. The 6th edition of The Case Manager’s Handbook builds upon previous content to highlight, among other important topics, evolving reimbursement models, provider organization structures and patient engagement strategies. Understanding these topics is fundamental to our ability to serve as advocates both for our patients and our profession. I highly recommend The Case Manager’s Handbook to both new and seasoned case management professionals, as well as anyone who is building a case management program in this dynamic health care environment.

Regardless of the case management setting, The Case Manager’s Handbook is an excellent resource to use to develop programs, onboard new case managers or to keep experienced case managers current. I am not aware of another publication / book that covers this breath of information across all types of case management. This book is an excellent tool for both new and experienced case managers, and a very useful guide in becoming a better case manager and in preparing for certification.

A must-have for all case managers! If you are a seasoned case manager or studying to be one, this is THE book you need! I have been a board-certified case manager for 13 years working in catastrophic case management, home care case management, and managed care case management. Throughout my career I have collaborated with all healthcare and community resources and without exception, we all have this book within reach. Now more than ever before it is CRUCIAL to stay abreast of the ever-changing healthcare landscape, failure to do so may result in poor outcomes for your patients. The Case Manager’s Handbook is s robust source for everything from case management principals to implementation and care coordination. Additionally the guidance in regulatory and compliance ensures a safe practice. As a case manager, patient centered care and patient advocacy is the core of why we do what we do. However, all too often we become myopic and focus on day-to-day tasks while putting out fires. The content of this handbook provides the necessary insight to be more proactive and inclusive of all patients in all care settings on the clinical, psycho-social, and overall needs of the patient and their caregivers.”
