Patient safety is a cause for concern among health care providers, payers, employers, policy makers, and the general public.

This article discusses the patient safety movement in this country and defines the vital role case managers can play in making health care safer for patients. It describes the changing case manager challenges and competencies needed to meet these challenges.
