Data Manager

Existing collaboration and access to same patient information facilitates effective communication and strategizing. MCMs and Medical providers attend multidisciplinary team meetings. The MCM, CM and medical provider data are all entered into the same database, only one report to the In+care Campaign is needed.


Off-Site Case Management

  • I am a Case Management only program
  • I am excited about this national campaign project
  • Do I have a role in this effort?
  • How do I participate, how do I contribute?
  • Unsure if I have sufficient medical information to respond to the retention indicators
  • Unsure if I have the skill, expertise, or data to measure
off site case management

Northern New Jersey

Off Site Case Management

Urban, densely populated, Higher HIV incidence, more HIV services available

Case Study Model

  • Stand-alone case management program provides services for patients from 4 RW clinics
  • Medical providers refer for case management
  • Full medical records reside with medical providers
  • All 4 medical providers already participate in the campaign and submit bimonthly data

100% of patients served at CM unit receive care at 1 of 4 HIV clinics

Southern New Jersey

More rural, poor public transportation, smaller HIV programs

off site case management1
Off-Site Case Management
  • Campaign role for this CM program is critical, but different.
  • Emphasis on strategy development
    • Potential to design more individualized strategies
    • CMs play a critical role…..Patients often disclose information to the CM that they do NOT share with the provider. CMs in a unique position to think about strategies.
  • De-emphasize data and reporting
  • Providers who provide the medical care to these patients will be measuring the change, they will see the impact of the CM interventions in their reports from their databases.
moving forward how can we make this happen
Moving ForwardHow can we make this happen?

Add in the in+Care Campaign Champion!

  • Can help to establish more collaborative relationships
  • Can help to establish better 2-way communication
    • Some communication between medical and case management clinics occurs, but not sufficient to provide each with the info they really need
  • Can provide guidance, encouragement, support….Get it started!

C) Lessons Learned

  • Navigating through changing managed care landscape
  • Calling day before appt. is high touch and increases retention
  • Medical provider outreach is often more successful than case mgr. outreach
  • Newly diagnosed people have fears that need to be managed before they can interact productively with the care team
  • Proactive review of patient appt-keeping behavior to keep ahead of the game
  • Patient orientation to clinic alleviates fears
  • Open access scheduling
  • Peer to peer counseling at diagnosis helps link people to care immediately
  • Patients trust their case managers and med providers – trust in that trust
  • Less red tape when senior leadership is involved in retention dialogue
  • Exit interviews with patients after appt. ends to make sure they understood

intent of medical case management

Coordinate ALL medically – related care and services.

  • Diminish barriers to care
  • Facilitate receipt of medical, social and supportive services to maintain optimal health.


MCM is a range of client-centered services that link clients with health care, psychosocial, and other services. The coordination and follow-up of medical treatments are KEY components.

MCM include the provision of treatment adherence counseling to ensure readiness for, and adherence to, complex HIV/AIDS treatments.

Intent of Medical Case Management
key activities of mcm

Initial Assessment (Medical, Psychosocial, Literacy, etc)

  • Development of Comprehensive, individualized care plan.
  • Coordination of service with a multidisciplinary medical team and community partners.
  • Patient (client) monitoring
  • Interdisciplinary conferencing to assess the efficacy of the plan.
  • Periodic re-evaluation and adaptation of the plan.
  • Client advocacy.
  • Client education on disease management.
  • Follow-up on medication adherence.
  • Review of utilization of services.
Key Activities of MCM
rationale behind the model
Rationale Behind the Model

Interpretation of labs, pill box re-fill, adherence education, disease management, linkage, etc.


Since billing is done on a monthly basis, when we find out about the medical appointment a month after, and we can’t add as a service, therefore we add it under screening.

Activities to assure In-Care

  • Intake Process:
  • Each client that is referred to the FACES program has to complete an “Intake Process” to be able to be assigned a MCM to become enrolled in the program.
  • This process is performed by a multidisciplinary group of professionals:
    • An Intake Specialist:
      • who is in charge of assuring “client’s” eligibility through confirmation of income, diagnoses, and residency. (Clients need to live in the EMA) in order to be eligible.
      • Also they evaluate the housing situation and any psychosocial immediate needs.
    • A Mental Health Specialist:
      • The MH specialist performs the MH assessment and the substance abuse assessment.
    • A Nurse Case Manager:
      • The nurse conducts the medical assessment.
  • Once the assessment (INTAKE) process is completed an Acuity Scale is filled out by each of the specialists.

Activities to assure In-Care

  • Intake / Partnership Agreement:
  • All “clients” that are enrolled into the program have to sign a “Partnership Agreement”. This agreement is a document that explains the partnership relation between the MCM and the client, including rights and responsibilities.
  • MDI Assignment
  • The cases are presented weekly at the Multidisciplinary Intake Meeting, where each interviewer presents the client and through a discussion and analysis the case is assigned to the MCM or the Non-Medical Case Manager based on the client’s needs and Acuity Scale.
  • Primary Care Tracking
  • Regardless of the level of case management (MCM/nMCM) FACES tracks medical HIV appointments for ALL of the clients.

Activities to assure In-Care

  • Service Plans:
  • The Service Plan includes Goals, Objectives, Client’s action steps, MCM’s action steps.
  • It is reviewed every three months to assure achievements.
  • Treatment Adherence Rate
  • Any client taking medication will be assessed for medication adherence rate. If needed the MCM will work with clients filling pill boxes, creating schedule charts, assuring that environment is suitable for medication intake, discussing with providers barriers and secondary effects.
  • Assisting Client during Medical Appointment:
  • The MCM will attend at least once and when needed to the medical appointment with the client. This helps not only create a relationship with the medical provider, but also helps form the MCM to become advocates for their “clients”.
  • After this relation has been established many times the medical provider will directly call the MCM to help them intervene with the patients.

Activities to assure In-Care

  • Performance Data Management
  • Each MCM is responsible for tracking the performance measures for each of their clients.
  • CAREWare allows case managers to track performance measures by individual and as a case load.
  • Once the MCM identifies that a client has fallen out of the PM they will immediately react proactively and work with the client and address, barriers to assure retention.
  • FACES has a bi-monthly QM meeting where PM measures are analyzed and compared with previous months. During this meeting a list of clients that are falling out is given to each responsible MCM for follow-up.
  • The Performance Measurement activity is also described in each MCM job description and it’s part of their performance evaluation.
supporting the in care campaign

Tracking Retention from the MCM perspective:

    • Each MCM knows exactly how many of their patients are in care and which ones are following out of care.
    • When a MCM does not hear or have contact with a “client” during the past 30 days and can’t be reach, the case is referred to Case Finding.
    • A outreach specialist receives the referral and initiates the search through:
      • Phone calls
      • Home Visits
      • Clinic Visits
    • The case finding outreach worker has 30 days to respond to the referral.
    • The outcomes could be:
      • Lost to follow-up
      • Not interested in Service
      • Linked back
Supporting the In Care Campaign
other activities include
Other Activities Include
  • Informing clients about resources such as “Med Action Plan” .
  • medication and medical appointments through phone messages.
  • Involving “clients” in their own care.
  • Support and Peer groups.
  • Transportation Assistance.
  • Educational conference, lunch and meeting with clients.
  • Employees participation in quality activities.
mcm incare campaign

We decided that if we reported our numbers to the campaign, we will be duplicating the data of our local providers.

  • Decided not to report.
  • We track the Retention in Care of patients enrolled in MCM
  • We participate in the in+care Campaign Local Retention Group
  • As grantee we encourage our Primary Care Providers to participate and we help them to track their patients.
  • Locally, it will be ideal to track NOT only patients that are in-care; but also of those patients in-care, how many are working with MCM.
  • REMEMBER the MCM’s primary PURPOSE is the LINKAGE to and RETENTION in CARE.
