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.
