Patient safety is an important concern of many healthcare stakeholders, including patients, providers, employers, health plans, and insurers. In 2003, URAC conducted a qualitative study to examine the role of utilization management programs as part of a systemic approach to promoting patient safety. Many of URAC's findings are applicable to case management as well. URAC found that most medical management companies address patient safety indirectly, as part of a global quality management program. Even so, the study identified a number of strengths that could be deployed by medical management organizations to more systematically promote patient safety. For example, case management organizations use decision support tools to assist frontline practitioners in conducting assessments and tracking interventions. Such systems could be programmed to flag safety concerns and guide interventions. The study also found that commonly used case management assessment protocols could be adapted to routinely assess for high priority safety concerns. URAC concluded that each stage of the medical management process offers opportunities for data collection and clinical interface to promote patient safety. Case managers have key positions interfacing between patients, providers, and the healthcare system. Development of safety indicators and training of staff are key elements needed to effectuate a safety program in medical management. Case management leaders in each organization and at the national level should make patient safety a priority, and define the processes for implementing safety systems wherever case management is practiced.
