MiCMRC supports networking statewide as Michigan Practices and Physician Organizations share their care manager (CM) orientation and onboarding tools and resources.
The sources for CM orientation and onboarding tools and resources include:
- Materials shared by Michigan Physician Organizations and practices
- Evidence based literature
- Michigan Care Management Resource Center
If you have CM orientation/onboarding tools and or resources you would like to submit for sharing statewide, please contact email@example.com
Care Manager orientation resources and tools may be used to enhance an existing care manager orientation program, assist with building and effective care manager orientation, and address onboarding for new care managers. Successful care manager orientation and onboarding programs assist practices in producing outcomes which improve quality and decrease cost.
Care Manager Orientation Cornerstones
There are three cornerstones of an effective Care Manager orientation
1. Orientation to the care manager role and responsibilities
2. Orientation to the practice environment, the people and the work
3. Orientation to the population of patients seen by the practice
Orientation - more administrative in nature and typically involves the completion of new hire paperwork, enrolling in benefit plans and learning the mission, values and vision of the organization
Onboarding - long term focus aimed at identifying training needs, setting performance goals, providing on-going feedback, and ensuring the new employee is a positive addition to your team.
When used together, orientation and onboarding help establish organizational commitment, clarity of job tasks, and job satisfaction.
