Care Management
Utah’s Health Care Initiative
The priority initiatives for UCAP were:
• Care Management – program and curriculum
implemented for post BSN level nurses.
• Residency Program –Capstone combined residency
to integrate graduate nurses in to practice.
• Innovative Clinical Placement – clinical placement
opportunities other than traditional experiences to
meet clinical educations outcomes and quality of
clinical experiences for nursing students.
Objectives
1. Organize healthcare industry to assess the
unique care management needs in Utah’s
community.
2. Base curriculum on regional industry as well
as national standards of care management.
3. Prepare a program of study that can be shared
by other nursing and social work higher-ed
systems.

Partners
The Gap: Survey Says . . .
“Care management competencies lack an
educational pathway.”
THE PURPOSE
• To continue the profession
of nursing as the leader of
care management and
population management—
balancing cost, quality, and
access.
• Clinical, financial, and
psychosocial theory and
experience to be successful
in these roles.
Phase One
Implementation
University of Utah developed Program of Study
and Course Objectives for:
–Post Baccalaureate Certificate
–Master’s track
(approved by Utah Board of Regents and UofU
Academic Senate)
Phase Two
Expanding to Interdisciplinary
• Industry identified expert care managers
• U of U enrolled first Cohort at the U of U from
these industry experts
• Expand the certificate to an Interdisciplinary
status for nurses, social workers and other
healthcare professions
Phase Three
Sharing with other State Universities
• Programs of Study and Course Objectives for
Certificate Program shared with partnering
Universities.
• Partnering Universities taking POS and course
approvals through their own institution processes.
• Partnering universities collaborating on shared
faculty load, payment from student to teaching
institution per course.
Best Practices
• Already connected groups
– Education and Industry healthcare leaders already
meeting in one forum
• Using what we have
– The CON already had structure of certificate and
Master’s programs in other specialties
• Recognition and Support
– Recognize, call-out, support the progress noted
Challenges
• Continued connection with partners for next
steps
• Identifying other strengths in other facilities to
support the goals
Conclusion
• Q&A
• Or share your State’s current initiatives
