Case management has developed as an administrative service for controlling costs and improving the quality of health and social
service delivery. Long-term care case management combined with service expansion has been examined in some detail with varied
results. Less research has focused on case management for users of high-cost medical care. This overview highlights five programs
and patient groups where integrated delivery and/or financing of medical and long-term care services are being demonstrated
and where new roles for case management may be indicated.
