“The Case In Point Platinum Awards demonstrate the important work taking place by case managers and members of the care coordination team throughout the care continuum,” said Anne Llewellyn, Editor in Chief of Case in Point. “Dorland Health is proud to present these awards and recognize the professionals and organizations improving the delivery of care.”

Rising was chosen for its Ultimate Care Program, an initiative that moves care intervention from a traditionally reactive model to a proactive, predictive, and preventive model. Through early intervention and enabling technologies, the results have demonstrated a powerful impact on both employee health and claim outcomes.
