Care Liaisons provide resources & a smooth transition
ABCM Care Liaisons work to enhance communication and facilitate partnerships between ABCM homes and our referral sources. Our goal in providing this free service is to identify your needs and actively seek solutions so we can work together in a collaborative atmosphere to improve quality and transitions of care. Our Care Liaisons can provide expertise in regard to financial resources and regulations; inform you of program specialties and availability; and serve as a neutral resource to ensure open communication. Our team works to assure the transfer of clinical information is efficient, cost effective and seamless for healthcare professionals. Care Liaisons provide individuals and families time to ask questions and explain services to ensure they are able to make informed decisions about their care in a timely manner.
