Case Managers’ Collaborative Role Celebrated During National Case Management Week
Allsup joins Case Management Society of America in celebrating National Case Management Week, Oct. 11-17, 2015
Belleville, Illinois—Oct. 8, 2015—Case managers serve a critical collaborative role for individuals, their families and community organizations nationwide, according to the Case Management Society of America (CMSA). The CMSA and Allsup are recognizing case managers during National Case Management Week, Oct. 11-17, 2015. Allsup is a nationwide provider of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation, veterans disability appeal, exchange plan and Medicare services.
The CMSA’s 2015 theme is “Engage, Empower, Enhance, Enable,” which features the dynamic role of case managers to work as catalysts who engage and empower patients and their families, educators who assist and enhance their communities, and advocates who provide cohesion across their organizations enabling the process of delivering high-quality healthcare and care coordination services.
National Case Management Week recognizes professionals working in managed care organizations, healthcare facilities, military installations and other entities. CMSA supports this broad network of case management professionals with webinars and conferences, professional training toward certification, career development opportunities, online community and resources, as well as policy advocacy and representation in Washington, D.C.
“Case managers are the recognized experts and vital participants of the collaborative team, who engage and empower people to understand and access quality, efficient healthcare, as well as enabling cost-effective outcomes,” said CMSA President Kathleen Fraser. “Case management professionals bring change and enhance quality by being the thermostats of healthcare, not just the thermometers!"
Resources for individuals, employers, policy makers and others are available at www.cmsa.org. CMSA’s Annual Conference & Expo will be held June 20-23, 2016, in Long Beach, California.
