Number of Adults Provided Case Management Services by Adult Outpatient Programs
Story Behind the Curve
Case management services are forms of assistance that include planning, developing, choosing, gaining access to, coordinating and monitoring of the provision of medical, social, educational, and other services and supports, such as discharge planning, advocacy, monitoring, and supporting them to make and assess their own decisions.
The mental health field has recognized that some individuals can benefit from additional supports beyond therapy and case management services offers additional support for individuals.
The support of case management services has led to an increase in the number of adults receiving these services throughout the reporting period.
The Department’s Payment Reform initiative, launched in January 2019, continues to support flexible service delivery including case management services.
