Complex Case Management
What is complex case management?
Complex case management is the process of coordinating care for members who are identified as having significant medical care needs that may be acute or chronic in nature. Complex case management also involves the proactive management of anticipated medical situations. The process encompasses care coordination, anticipatory guidance, targeted education and support in behavioral changes. Licensed, registered nurses, under the direction of a HCPNV Medical Director, perform complex case management.
How are at risk members identified and what is encompassed in their care?
Members with potentially complex cases and needs are identified through various mechanisms including referrals from other health care workers, self referrals and claims analysis. Coordination and maximization of benefits with the Health Plan/Payor and providers is required throughout episodes of illness and continuum of care. This service also includes assisting with the transition of new members into a plan or assisting members with other care, if necessary, when benefits end or upon termination of providers. Complex case managers develop plans of care, based on patients' needs, in conjunction with patients and their families, physicians, or ancillary providers. Episodic issues requiring coordination, support and education are also addressed through this department.
Members who also participate in Disease Management programs will receive applicable educational materials, in addition to any case management services they may need.
For more information or to refer a member to the HCPNV Case Management Program, contact the Case Management Department at 702.318.2400.
Social Worker Services
HealthCare Partners Nevada employs two social workers who are available to assist our patients with their social and financial needs. Some of the services the social workers provide are assistance with obtaining community resources, financial assistance with medications and other needs [when qualified], finding alternative living situations, and coordinating services not covered by insurance. Patients can be referred to our social workers from anyone within the healthcare continuum — RN Care Coordinators, providers, hospital staff, customer service. The Social Worker will call the patient and/or family member and schedule appropriate visits, either telephonically or in person (usually at the primary care office or hospital). Our social workers do not make home visits, but can meet patients in public places.
