PUBLIC POLICY FORUM AND IMPROMPTU NETWORKING
WHY SHOULD CASE MANAGERS BE INVOLVED?
To be presented Monday, June 22, 2015
Presenters: Patricia Noonan, Connie Sunderhaus, and Chriss Wheeler
Following the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, case management has taken a more
visible role in addressing the issues of chronic care management, patient advocacy, communication,
transitions of care and reduction of avoidable hospital readmissions. This session will discuss
how Federal and State health care policy may affect our practice and how nurses, social workers,
and allied health professionals can stay involved and have a voice in the issues facing us today:
telemedicine, mental health parity, the Office of the National Nurse, multi-state licensure and
attribution of payment for case managers.
* Review the issues impacting case management.
* Define the legal and ethical considerations related to accreditation,
licensure and scope of practice.

To be presented June 23, 2015
The Affordable Care Act has brought
significant attention to the clinical, financial
and policy drivers influencing quality, patient
safety, and case management. New policy and/
or regulatory provisions often impact the case
manager and their role. In some instances, case
managers have been identified as the pivotal
professionals to implement those changes.
This session will look at various new initiatives
and regulatory policies that are impacting case
managers across the continuum.
* Describe enacted policy drivers that may
facilitate or challenge case managers and
their scope of practice.
* Discuss future policy implications
that will affect case managers and the
management of medically complex
patients and their family caregivers.
* Outline the requirements of the 2015
Chronic Care Management (CCM) codes
and the impact these codes may have to
case management. ■
