Triaging / Case Management

Position papers and a
triaging /case management forum can be accessed from here. Triaging frameworks are tending to evolve as follows:
  • Identification of low severity cases suitable for high-throughput, low cost services, together with satisfaction and cost-effectiveness outcomes evaluations of these services.
  • Identification of moderate severity/ complexity cases for suitable for assessment and specific treatments, together with benchmarking evaluations of these treatments.
  • Identification of cases needing and /or likely to benefit from high cost. intensive services ($10,000+ per case). There seem to be many more such cases than can be accommodated by the scarce treatment slots/ desks/ beds. Which severe cases get which intensive service slots; how are the remainder served , and what are the outcomes?

Guidelines and papers will be listed below as received, for discussion on the triaging / case management forum.
