Implementing the Care Team Coordinator Model of Care allows organizations to focus on providing quality nursing care at the bedside while improving their documentation. This model of care improves satisfaction for the case manager by decreasing their time spent in documentation through the use of Care Team Coordinating nurses. The Care Team Coordinator RN is that rare nurse who excels at developing individualized plans of care, enjoys multi-tasking using multiple systems and who has strong communication and leadership skills. Outcomes for this model of care will be discussed and include: increased productivity for the case manager, confidence that the clinical documentation meets regulatory standards, improved job satisfaction and ultimately better patient care.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the current, standard model of care of case manager, specific caseload and documentation expectations
2. Outline the Care Team Coordinator Model of Care
3. Discuss options for implementing this model of care within your organization
