There are similarities between both case managers and care managers. Case management is a title typically used in medical settings, such as hospitals. Case managers work with patients and families to provide an understanding of the patient’s health/medical conditions, and work to connect care services. Care managers can be seen as community professionals through an agency or a private paid service. They also work to connect clients with services but do this within a variety of healthcare systems, including medical and social programs. They collaborate and communicate with providers to ultimately meet their clients' needs medically, socially, and psychologically.
