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. Objectives: * Review the issues impacting case management. * Define the legal and ethical considerations related to accreditation, licensure and scope of practice. * Assess the public policy issues that CMSA is supporting and working to ensure a strong case management practice. 14 CMSA TODAY Issue 5 * 2015 * DIGITAL To be presented June 23, 2015 Cheri Lattimer 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. Objectives: * 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. â–  http://www.cmsa.org/extendedconference
