Abstract: The purpose of this presentation is to examine the potential role of case management in evidence, in outcomes measurement and analysis. Case management at the individual patient care or microsystem level and at the organizational or macrosystem level are both necessary for an effective outcomes management program. The preparation and experience of case managers at both levels of practice are examined. Outcomes and outcomes management procedures as delineated in the literature are used as a framework for differentiating the two levels of practice and preparation of case managers.
Keywords: case management, outcomes analysis, macrosystem, microsystem
