The importance of taking the time before-hand to get to know resource.

We recommend that care managers spend time up-front, meaning prior to meeting with patients, to develop
knowledge about resources that are available at your local, state, and national level. It is also very helpful if the care manager begins to develop relationships with contact persons at the agencies/resources within his/her community.

For example, the care manager visits a skilled nursing care facility, meets with the director, and learns about the services provided. The care manager is then able to get a sense of the living environment and makes the decision on whether or not to refer patients to that facility in the future. In addition, getting to know the director and being able to refer patients directly without having to jump through hoops is key to a smooth and successful referral process.
