Chapter Objectives

  • To delineate the similarities and differences between adult and pediatric value-based integrated case management organizational environments, manager selection, and manager training.

  • To review specific components of the value-based integrated case management complexity assessment grid and how they differ from the adult value-based integrated case management complexity assessment grid.

  • To discuss development of pediatric care plans, with a broad view about the unique influences played by the family, school system, community services, and health system.

  • To share an outcome scenario describing how value-based pediatric integrated case management attempts to optimize a child’s/youth’s physical, behavioral health, neurocognitive, and life situation outcomes.
