Topic: Case Management
Case management lacks a common definition as a service category given variations in the models used. Nonetheless, the general understanding is that case management is a range of services that link clients to medical and support services. Ryan White defines medical case management (including treatment adherence) as a range of client-centered services that link clients with health care, psychosocial, and other services provided by trained professionals, including both medically credentialed and other health care staff. Medical case management is considered to be a core medical service for purposes of Ryan White funding requirements to allocate a set percentage of funds to core medical services.
