Our team
Our CMC team includes nurses with a variety of backgrounds, including many with advanced degrees in specialty areas such as parent-child health, public health, community health and business administration.

Many are Certified Nurse Case Managers and participate in local and national professional case management organizations. As well, our department includes several liaisons from payer organizations, community health agencies and government agencies.

Our team is divided into two groups:

  • Program-based Nursing Case Managers who provide care coordination services, including discharge planning for post-hospitalization services;
  • Centrally-based Utilization Management Case Managers who support appropriate use of and access to health care resources at Children's, including work with insurance companies to facilitate coverage of medically-necessary care. 

Case management is...

..."a collaborative process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the options and services required to meet an individual's health needs, using communication and available resources to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes."

Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
