Long Beach, NY, October 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The purpose for this week, according to the Case Management Society of America, is to raise awareness of the vital role case managers play in the healthcare environment and in the lives of patients. Case managers are responsible for verifying insurance coverage, educating patients on the options available for them within the perimeters of their coverage and facilitating the transfer and discharges of patients, among other responsibilities.
Hospitals, managed care organizations and other affiliated healthcare groups sponsor educational events during this special week to show appreciation to all of the hard-working case managers throughout the country.
The work that case managers do often overlaps with that of social workers, who are more publicly recognized. The result is that case managers often go overlooked and under-appreciated. In this spirit of gratitude and respect the healthcare community celebrated National Case Management Week.
“Case managers from the surrounding hospitals are an integral part of the family here at Beach Terrace. Although they do not always get the recognition they deserve, the work they do is so crucial to the healthcare world at large. It's so important that they know they're appreciated for the hard work they do on a daily basis,” said Martin Zwick, Administrator at Beach Terrace Care Center.
