What is a Case Manager?
Case managers are recognized experts and vital participants in the care coordination team who empower people to understand and access quality, efficient health care. Case management professionals help patients get healthier, faster; and help curtail the exorbitant costs that too often afflict the nation’s health care system. CMSA discusses best practices and industry benchmarks for the professional case manager.
A Strategic Mission
The Case Management Society of America is the leading membership association providing professional collaboration across the health care continuum to advocate for patients’ wellbeing and improved health outcomes through: Fostering Case Management growth and development, Impacting health care policy, and Providing evidence-based tools and resources.
Commitment to Leadership
Because case managers are effective communicators, problem solvers, and visionaries, CMSA offers an opportunity for members to utilize their skill sets and maximize their talents. The enormous success of the organization lies in one simple concept – professional leadership. To further the professional knowledge and career opportunities of its members, CMSA also offers a number of education programs.
