The presentation will update attendees on updated conceptualization of assist and support activities, of which one is care coordination. It will review the concept of health complexity, common definitions, and how it is best viewed for purposes of the delivery of value-added assist and support to patients and for their clinicians.
This will be followed by a description of a specific form of assist and support activities (care coordination) called adult and pediatric integrated case management (ICM and PICM), the tools associated with its use, the CMSA ICM and PICM training program, and the ICM and PICM document and follow-up software. Finally, use and outcomes related to ICM and PICM will be discussed. Time will remain for questions.

- Describe ICM and PICM complexity based tools and the Case Management Society of America sponsored training curriculum.
- Review ICM and PICM software and its applications.
