CMSA TODAY

Issue 6 * 2017

n June 2017, CMSA and The Commission for Case Manager Certification
(CCMC) announced an agreement to
work collaboratively to promote case manager professional development. CMSA will
promote and support the CCM certification
and, in turn, CCMC will promote and support membership in CMSA's case management association.
The collaboration is a natural one between
the oldest and largest non-membership
NCCA-accredited case manager certification body and the oldest and largest case
management membership organization.
While their roles are separate, both share a
similar vision: advancing professional case
managers in their career paths to ensure
high-quality, ethical practice benefitting
patients and their families.
"Case managers play a pivotal role in
today's team-based healthcare models
emphasizing coordinated, effective care
delivery," said MaryBeth Kurland, CAE, the
Commission's CEO. "Our emphasis to prepare and develop a viable case manager
workforce aligns with CMSA's. By working collaboratively with the premier case
manager membership organization, we
strengthen our healthcare system, enabling
a workforce that's ready to meet today's
healthcare needs."
The Commission's Certified Case
Manager® (CCM®) credential, held by more
than 42,000 case managers, is cross-cutting
across settings and applicable to professionals from a range of training backgrounds,
validating quality and ethical practice.
The Commission also oversees the field's
professional code of conduct. The Case
Management Society of America (CMSA)

is the leading membership association providing professional collaboration across the
full healthcare continuum to advocate for
patients' well-being and improved health
outcomes by fostering case management
growth and development, impacting healthcare policy and creating and sustaining the
Standards of Practice for Case Management.
"For decades, CMSA and CCMC have
been dedicated to the professional growth of
case managers as they navigate their careers
in an ever-changing healthcare system," says
CMSA Executive Director Kathleen Fraser,
MSN, MHA, RN-BC, CCM, CRRN. "Through
this collaborative, two premier organizations in the case management field are now
working together to establish a roadmap for
the future of case management education,
certification and recognition."
"Our collaboration will enrich the case
manager community," says Mary McLaughlin
Davis, DNP, ACNS-BC, NEA-BC, CCM, CMSA
national president. "We are natural partners,
working to enhance quality outcomes for our
patients and case managers."
This represents a joint commitment to
advance case managers, who help patients
get the physical, emotional, social and
financial support to achieve optimal health,
says Jane Harkey, RN-BC, MSW, CCM,
Commission chair. "CMSA shares our vision.
Collaboration is a win for case managers
and employers who look for the CCM as the
mark of professional excellence."
Under the agreement, CMSA members
will receive a 20-percent discount when
applying for the CCM as well as upon
renewal. Those who hold the CCM certification will receive a 20-percent discount for
CMSA membership. ■
