Activity Steps

Description

Since the late 1980s, there has been a significant increase in chronic conditions among children aged 2 and older. This increase is disproportionately large among minority children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has identified care coordination as a means to address the needs of children with chronic conditions. The authors' study measured labor and costs of care coordination programs. Their findings show that with a better understanding of how case management teams work together, how sharing and handoff of tasks occur, and labor time associated with each allows for the development of more efficient and potentially effective models of care. Results of this study can be used to justify reimbursement for services, assessments, and the development of care plans by demonstrating to payers the efforts required for care coordination.

Purpose of Activity

To gain knowledge about a work-sampling study conducted to estimate time allocation and labor cost for care coordinators (CCs), community health workers (CHWs), and mental health workers (MHWs) who conduct care coordination tasks in a pediatric care coordination program.

Learning Objectives

After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:

  1. Explain the rationale of the authors' study of time allocation and labor cost for various types of workers who conduct care coordination tasks in a pediatric care coordination program.
  2. Describe the methodology the authors applied to their study of time allocation and labor cost for various types of workers who conduct care coordination tasks in a pediatric care coordination program.
  3. Summarize the findings of the authors' study of time allocation and labor cost for various types of workers who conduct care coordination tasks in a pediatric care coordination program.
