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.
|How an Agency Selects and then Prioritizes More Severe Referrals
||An agency selects more severe referrals with pre-screening criteria, then prioritizes using BCFPI scores. Next it modifies about 10% of these BCFPI-based priorities based on further clinical assessment (when there is doubt regarding the BCFPI results).
