Celebrating the Case Manager’s Critical Role in Smarter, Better, Faster Healthcare

This week, in honor of National Case Management Week (Oct. 13-19), leaders at Vālenz are sending a message to case managers across the country: Thank you.

“Case managers are pivotal in the complex process of ensuring safe, effective and timely patient care,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Revenue Officer of Valenz. “In the nationwide effort to reduce healthcare costs while improving quality and outcomes, case management delivers big wins for everyone, especially patients and self-insured employer groups.”

Case management is one of three primary, URAC-accredited services offered via Vālenz Care, a core solution within the complete healthcare administrative ecosystem recently unveiled by Valenz. Dedicated nurse case managers work closely with patients, providers, employers and payers to target the most appropriate levels of care before services are rendered, resulting in dramatic savings for the plan and member.

“Driven by actionable data – both individualized and aggregated – the work of our care management team helps our clients move from a plan model of reactive care to one of proactive population health management,” explained Amy Gasbarro, President of Valenz Care.

For patients, case managers are care coordinators, navigators, and advocates for high-quality care that comes at a lower cost because it is the right care at the right place at the right time – every time. For self-insured employers and other professional stakeholders, they offer a value-focused path to managing health administrative costs and quality by reducing expensive emergency room visits, hospitalizations and other high-dollar claim events.

For all that and more, the entire team at Valenz is grateful to case managers – this week and every week.
