Overview

Managing Managed Care II: A Handbook for Mental Health Professionals, Second Edition, provides an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use method for documenting and communicating the necessity, appropriateness, and course of treatment for managed care review. Using the Patient Impairment Profile method, practitioners can convincingly convey a clinical rationale for treatment, efficiently track progress over time, and demonstrate favorable patient outcomes.

Keeping pace with the evolving and expanding presence of managed care, the authors have extensively revised and enlarged the previous edition. New clinical research on the validity and reliability of the impairment terminology has produced a much-improved, clinically valid, and statistically reliable impairment lexicon. Detailed severity rating qualifiers, reference lists of patient objectives, and a useful glossary have been added. All regulations have also been updated.

Managing Managed Care II is reference and valuable resource for mental health practitioners and for the individuals who monitor and review treatment. By providing concise, relevant, and outcome-focused treatment information, practitioners become proactive participants in managed care while adeptly articulating the value and quality of their services.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John K. Larson, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a significantly revised second edition of a book, originally published in 1992, that is a collaboration of three authors — a psychiatrist, a nurse, and a psychotherapist — all of whom are actively seeing patients in a predominantly managed care setting. The authors support the position that medical necessity is based on a demonstration of functional impairment and that the mental health professional's role should focus on reducing the severity of that impairment. They provide a pragmatic classification system for assessing impairment, rating its severity, designing a focused treatment plan, and measuring outcome.
Purpose: The purpose is to enable practitioners to communicate more effectively in a managed care environment. However, the book is also provocative and stimulates a higher level of critical thinking in case formulations and in evaluating our effectiveness in our work with patients, regardless of theoretical orientation.
Audience: The book is targeted for all mental health practitioners, especially those who see patients in cost-conscious settings where communication with case managers is necessary. Psychiatrists working in consultation-liaison relationships with other physicians will also benefit from its pragmatic approach and lack of jargon.
Features: The book uses numerous case examples to illustrate major points, including impairment and its relationship to diagnosis, rating of severity, treatment goals, patient objectives, interventions, and measurement of progress and outcome. A description of proprietary software that incorporates the authors' approach to treatment planning is included. The book concludes with an extensive glossary incorporating an impairment lexicon, severity rating scales and qualifiers, a patient objectives list, and an excellent list of supporting references.
Assessment: This book can be enthusiastically recommended to those besieged mental health practitioners looking for a better way to advocate for their patients in managed care settings. Any practitioner will benefit from exposure to the critical thinking and jargon-free language elucidated by the authors.
