12:38:32     From  Michael Newell   to   All panelists : Technically, Care Management is process oriented, focusing on the Process of care rather than an individual, where Case Management focuses on and individual. The terms got confused when the hospitals started saying that they do case management, when their primary focus was one-shot discharge planning, not care over the continuum. The confusions with Care vs. Case Management is complicated by the need for (primarily) geriatric care managers to manage the hands-on care providers, wherever possible. To add to the confusion, some claim to be Health Advocates, but are not always advocating for the patient/client's best interests.
