Allsup has been honored with Dorland Health’s Case in Point Platinum Award in the Disability Case Management Programs category.

“We are so appreciative of this recognition,” said Karen Hercules-Doerr, healthcare executive and director of Community-Based Representatives (CBR) for Allsup. “Our community-based representatives work diligently to help case managers, social workers and their patients better understand their options, especially as they relate to achieving long-term financial security and better health. We’d like to thank the professional case managers and social workers who have made this award possible.”
The awards program highlights the innovative and creative work across the healthcare system that improves access, promotes wellness and ensures safe transitions of care through effective care coordination across the care continuum, according to a press release from Dorland Health.
