CMAG 2012 builds upon past versions to reflect the evolving landscape of case management as it relates to adherence philosophy, patient engagement and various practice settings in an increasingly technological environment. Factors which may affect a patient’s ability to adhere to a plan outside of standard clinical diagnoses and treatment, such as socioeconomic dynamics, are considered in CMAG 2012. The information and tools presented in this edition are intended to serve the professional care management community as the standard by which case managers can advance assistance, coaching and monitoring efforts with the goal of ultimately improving care delivery and patient outcomes.
