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 health care 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.
