The case conference is an important part of the patient care continuum in which care team members and other professionals discuss the patient’s health status and decide next steps. Case conferences can be held in many settings. The most frequent scenario is the presentation of a high-risk patient to an interdisciplinary group of health professionals working together to coordinate the care. Together, the team develops a plan that aligns evidence-based approaches with the patient’s goals.
Pega Care Management offers the ability to plan, schedule, and conduct case conferences within the application. Using the data available on the Patient 360 and the care plan, the case conference can be used to review important items that require follow-up and proper documentation. With the Microsoft Exchange integration, schedules can be checked to ensure that important resources can be available for the meeting. Next steps and assignment of actions are driven from the case conference.
Case managers can launch a case conference by accessing the Patient 360 and clicking.
For more information about care plans, see Case conference in the Pega Care Management Business Use Case Guide on the Pega Care Management product page.
