Despite case management’s humble beginnings, the overall importance of case management has increased exponentially over the years. Over the past 25 years the role of case management (CM) in the health care field has evolved (Huber, 2018). The patient-centered primary care model is currently preferred. It requires quality-driven prevention and outpatient management in order to produce favorable outcomes for patients. Case Management is an essential part of the primary care model. In the early 1990’s the effectiveness of case management was unclear (Huber, 2018). CM nurses were unnoticed and rarely paid for their services (Huber, 2018). Health insurance companies acknowledge that the utilization of case management nurses produces quality and cost containment outcomes (Huber, 2018).
