CMSA Association News CMSA'S STANDARDS OF PRACTICE FOR CASE MANAGEMENT, REVISED 2016 The Case Management Society of America (CMSA) is proud to announce the release of CMSA's 2016 Standards of Practice for Case Management. The impetus for the 2016 revision of the Standards is the need to emphasize the professional nature of the practice and role of the case manager. The maturity of the practice of case management, the importance of protecting the professional role of case managers and the enactment of new laws and regulations, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all legitimize professional case management as an integral and necessary component of the healthcare delivery system in the United States. "I believe that professional case managers are critical members of the collaborative care team, as their contributions are crucial in assisting the care team to achieve positive outcomes for our patients," stated Kathleen Fraser, CMSA executive director. "We recognized the need to revise the Standards in order to be reflective of the expanding role of the professional case manager and to help define the contributions and value case managers bring to the changing health care system." The 2016 Standards contain information about case management including an updated definition, practice settings, roles and responsibilities, case management process, philosophy and guiding principles, as well as the standards and how they are demonstrated. CMSA provides these standards as a resource to professional case managers and the healthcare industry. To learn more and download your copy, visit http://www.cmsa.org/sop. CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHT: SETTING THE STANDARD THROUGH APPLICATION OF THE NEW CMSA CORE CURRICULUM At CMSA's 26th Annual Conference & Expo in Long Beach, case management thought leaders including past CMSA presidents gathered to present the new CMSA Core Curriculum and its value to the field of case management. Today, more than ever, case managers and the services they provide to individuals and their support systems are in the spotlight. No matter where you practice-acute care, ambulatory, long-term care, worker's compensation, hospice, payer-based, or other practice areas-you are being asked about the value of your services and to do more, often with less. This session reviewed the core components of delivering case management services and why you, as case managers, must focus on setting the standard of the care delivery model. As professional case managers, it is important to have consensus on our roles and functions depending on practice consideration, as it helps define for the industry why it is not possible for just any individual to use the title of professional case manager. Unite and join your voice with this prominent set of case management leaders, where we can work together to define and implement action for a professional case management model to benefit all.
