The overall goal of the HIV Care Connect Case Management program is to provide appropriate medical care and psychosocial services to all HIV + patients who receive HIV services from United Care of Massachusetts.
The HIV Care Connect Case Management program consists of onsite medical case management to assess a patient's psychosocial needs and coordinate care with the HIV treatment team. Additionally, the team also provides outreach case management services, and case managers educate and link patients to community resources which promote health and self-sufficiency.
Case managers provide community-based assessment, monitoring, and evaluation of patients who require more intensive follow-up and assistance. Each case manager works directly with the HIV medical provider to coordinate overall treatment goals and provide continuity of care across the patient's spectrum of medical and psychosocial needs.
