Oncology Case Management

Managing quality and cost with knowledge, compassion and clinical expertise

Oncology Case ManagementAmerican Health understands that behind every claim there is a person, a family and a support network looking for guidance to effectively deal with the short- and long-term impact of cancer. Assisting the patient in coping with the disease and learning how to be a survivor extends far beyond the initial diagnosis and early treatment. With more than 10 years of experience on average, our oncology case managers are professionals who understand the complexity of oncology treatments and work closely with the medical team through the entire treatment process. They provide comprehensive care by:

  • Determining medical necessity
  • Completing assessments to determine patient needs
  • Educating patients on their condition, treatment options and benefits
  • Collaborating with providers
  • Reviewing treatment plans
  • Achieving managed savings and negotiated rate reductions
  • Providing follow-up and reporting to clients

 

Three-level review process

In addition to providing patient advocacy and education, our oncology team acts as a safeguard by determining the appropriateness of chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments using national guidelines through a three-level review process between the case manager, authorization review team and the clinical oncology specialist or supervisor.

If at any time during this process it is determined that a treatment plan is questionable, the case is sent to physician review. This three-level process ensures that each case is reviewed consistently, efficiently and correctly.

  • American Health's integration of data in one place that can actually speak to one another (Disease Management can speak to Case Management, etc.) is a strong point to our book of business. Information is available to everyone, which really plugs some holes in the whole wellness/chronic disease management continuum. This filled our need for a program to manage people with chronic conditions and not just the catastrophic.
