Abstract:
This research study was conducted to examine changes in cost and service utilization of nurse case managed clients. A secondary analysis was conducted using a pre-test/post-test design. Data for this analysis were collected by Papenhausen (1995) for a study to measure the effect of nurse case management intervention on client outcomes. Cost data for 53 subjects for the periods six months before and six months after nurse case management intervention was initiated were compared. Statistically significant decreases were found in the frequencies of inpatient admissions and emergency visits, as well as in inpatient length of stay and the total cost of services. This cost, including that of nurse case management service, as determined by Huggins (1996), represented a 61% decrease from the total cost before nurse case management was started.
