Ambulatory case management is a dynamic program offered by UC Davis Health that identifies patient challenges and provides support over the phone to those with chronic conditions who need additional help as they manage their health at home. The program connects patients with the services and resources needed to help manage their overall health. Through ambulatory case management, organized care is provided to the patients of UC Davis Health by developing partnerships between the patient and their health care team.

How does ambulatory case management work?

Through doctor referrals our intake coordinators review patients health history and assign them to a case manager. Based on the patients needs a case manager will provide support over the phone, motivation, and resources to meet health care goals. Our team strives to improve the patient experience by assisting individuals with sustainable lifestyle changes.
