ATLANTA, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadspire Care Management recently won a Silver Crown Award from Dorland Health, publishers of Case In Point magazine, for its innovative mature market case management programs.

The award, given in the Aging in Place category, celebrates "the leading practices, programs and practitioners who profoundly ease the burdens of our aging population," according to the publication. "Broadspire Care Management utilizes two types of assessment services in its leading-edge aging in place program that others would be wise to model after: an on-site visit and telephonic consultation." The magazine also lauded Broadspire Care Management's personnel for the quality and consistency of services they provide.

Broadspire Care Management helps protect the interests of families with special needs or elderly individuals. Care managers assess the condition of elderly, disabled or chronically ill persons to determine the housing, medical, long-term care, transition and other services that would best meet their needs. They also locate quality, cost-effective solutions and implement their recommendations, if the client chooses. These services are part of Broadspire, a Crawford Company and leading third party administrator (TPA) and medical management services provider.

The Silver Crown Awards were presented during a recent luncheon at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. The first annual awards program honors excellence and dedication among industry-leading organizations that provide exceptional services, products and information to the over-55 community, as well as recognizing individual health professionals who have achieved success in working with the senior population.
