The Common Attributes of Successful Care Manager Programs for High-Need, High-Cost Persons: A Cross-Case Analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Many programs use care managers to improve care coordination for high-need, high-cost patient populations. However, little is known about how programs integrate care managers into care delivery or the attributes shared by successful programs. We used a case study approach to examine the common attributes of 10 programs for high-need, high-cost individuals utilizing a longitudinal care manager that had achieved success in reducing cost, improving quality, or increasing patient satisfaction. Through interviews with program leaders and document review, we identified 10 common attributes of successful care manager programs, offering insights for providers aiming to better serve the high-need, high-cost population.
