Because the American medical system is actually a disconnected collection of medical businesses, elderly and disabled populations are routinely put at unnecessary risk. With patients often facing complex, interrelated medical issues and seeing multiple providers, these businesses rarely coordinate their efforts to provide the very best quality of care for their patients.
Umbrella Care Management acts as the portal through which all of a patient’s medical issues and social needs pass. Rather than viewing a patient’s situation as independent pieces, Umbrella’s nationally certified case managers — registered nurses and licensed social workers — use a concept known as patient-centered care. Using this model, we evaluate the patient’s “whole picture,” create a comprehensive plan to address interrelated problems, and coordinate services to ensure the best possible outcome and quality of life.
Our services are tailored to meet your precise needs; they range from ad hoc consultation services all the way to comprehensive, intensive case management. As a testament to our professionalism, credibility, and overall effectiveness at improving clients’ quality of life, Umbrella Care Management is the exclusive case management consultant for the MS Society of America in Orange and Sullivan Counties in New York.
