"While provider and
payer organizations can
sometimes be viewed
by patients as faceless
monoliths, the one-on-one
relationships between care
managers and patients
have offered a personalized
and individualized care
relationship to help offset
this reality."

personalization, a hybrid approach
to care plans can continue to evolve
with our collective expertise, boosted
by technology. Artificial intelligence
solutions may help us develop assessments that are akin to "Choose Your
Own Adventure" books, leading the
care manager down an increasingly
precise set of questions based on
previous answers. But these complex decision trees will be the same
from patient to patient, care manager to care manager, allowing this
data to be mined for insights on best
practices.
Adding evidence-based content
will enrich our care plans, optimize our patient outcomes, and
ultimately make our jobs even
more fulfilling than they already
are now. ■
