The “Alpha” and “Attending” Case ManagersPowell, Suzanne K. RN, MBA, CCM, CPHQProfessional Case Management: July/August 2015 - Volume 20 - Issue 4 - p 163–164 doi: 10.1097/NCM.0000000000000100 Departments: Editorial Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors Article MetricsMetrics Case management has gone from episodic, to coordinating central arenas, to fragmentation, and back again. We must now—at least for complex, selected patients—look at a new (or old) method of case management. This column talks about traditional case management, use of an “alpha” case manager, and the “attending” case manager. The editor reports no conflicts of interest.
