Certainly the term appears to be used generically across several areas; from (my own) (legal) perspective, I am not aware of any notable sources that deal with the topic, although there are statutory and other guidelines that impose limits; certainly professional organisations and government bodies will promulgate advice, but whether we need, or can sustain, an encyclopedic article on that topic is debatable IMO.

Thanks for the prompt reply. There is clearly enough for an article on case management (mental health) with plenty of reliable sources. The current article seems to be about the USA healthcare system, something I am not familiar with. The reason for a query from a law perspective was the line and reference in the lead section

The term case management is also used to refer to dispute resolution systems which provide court or tribunal officials with closer administrative control over the litigation process than is traditionally associated with common law litigation.Boulle, L. (2005). Mediation: Principles Process Practice. 2nd Edition. Queensland, Australia. LexisNexis Butterworths. Earlypsychosis (talk) 04:22, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
It's a synonym for law practice management[1]. Law practice management is better known and is the name given to the law school class dealing with case management issues in law practices. Itincludes high volume case management such as that seen in district attorney's offices of large cities. (talk) 07:40, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

In my jurisdiction England and Wales "case management" is also used in the context of judicial case management - that is the process of managing a case carried out by the court or tribunal. We have meetings in court called "case management conferences" (CMC's) at which a judge presides and directions are hammered out. For complex cases there may be many of these. Tribunals have something similar (Employment Tribunals call them Case Management Discussions, there are other terminologies). It would not be used as a synonym for law practice management (which means something else of course). Courts manage cases a lot more now than they did pre-1999.

it would be great if you could suggest a couple of good sources Earlypsychosis (talk) 01:08, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I am almost ready to go with several bold changes. Will create a disambigious page on case management. I really need some help with the legal case management concept, mainly removing the legal content from this article, including the discussion from above and adding to legal case management Earlypsychosis (talk) 23:52, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello! What was your rationale for deleting the merge tag on the legal case management page -- time in place? They are indeed the same subject and should definitely be merged. Cheers from a former b'hamster! Sctechlaw (talk) 22:48, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

It was due to how old it was. If I'm uncertain about 3-year-old merge tags and there isn't much discusion, I just delete them. If the merge was important to someone, they would have done it. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 00:21, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Unless you have an objection, I'll put it back (as a reminder to myself and others with more ambition than time, lol) because it's a to-do item for article coherence and continuity. Sctechlaw (talk) 00:29, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
