Outreach Case Management

Every client is enrolled in Outreach Services and assigned an Outreach Case Manager (OCM).  The OCM conducts the Intake Assessment with the client, establishes a Health and Assessment Needs Plan and a Plan of Action, conducts clinical screens, completes referrals, and provides general monitoring, follow-up, and support.  The OCM assists clients in advocacy issues, and will accompany the client to medical appointments if the client feels hesitant on his/her own.  For those self-referral clients that are uninsured, the OCM investigates eligibility and assists in applying for health care coverage. For those that don’t have a PCP, the OCM works to find a provider.  The OCM also assists in the delivery of education program components. OCMs provide on-going clinical monitoring via routine and as necessary clinical screens, and home visits for one-on-one education and services for those clients home-bound or otherwise not able to come to classes.
