What is care management?
Care management is a focused approach to planning and giving care to the people we serve. In 1995 we started a project to ensure that people with asthma were being given the best treatment and teaching we could offer. That was the beginning of care management at Aurora, and we've been going strong ever since.
The "care management approach" means that we work together to:
- Define health care needs of the people we serve
- Research the best ways to meet those needs
- Design a plan of action that can be carried out by all of our health professionals
- Measure our results against national standards
