Description - Managing Managed Care II by Michael Goodman
"Managing Managed Care II: A Handbook for Mental Health Professionals", second edition, provides an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use system for documenting quality of care and communicating with external reviewers. Its patient impairment profile system should guide practitioners through documenting and communicating treatment needs, developing a rationale for a treatment plan and treatment, and predicting the outcome of care. Keeping pace with the evolving and expanding presence of managed care required that the previous edition be extensively revised and enhanced. More than half of the chapters have new titles and content, and three of them have been completely rewritten. The authors added two new clinical appendixes and a glossary. They also updated all references to pertinent 1995 accreditation standards and federal regulations.
