n June 2017, Patricia Noonan, RN,
MBA, CCM and Chriss Wheeler,
RN, MSN, CCM of the CMSA
Public Policy Committee, presented
"The Case Management Model
Act: Professional Case Managers
Transforming Health Care" at CMSA's
27th Annual Conference & Expo in
Austin, TX. The following describes
the objectives and goals of the poster
presentation.
Who are professional case managers;
what is the Case Management Model
Act; and why must this important message be delivered to our policymakers?
Professional case managers are qualified health care professionals who are
guided by the standards of practice for
case management to deliver quality, efficient health care services. Professional
case managers are recognized experts
and vital participants in the care coordination team who empower people to
understand and access quality, safe and
efficient health care services according
to the CMSA Standards of Practice for
Case Management.
With the recognition that professional
case managers offer an effective solution
to promote quality care and outcomes
with a wide range of populations across
all health care settings, CMSA launched
the Case Management Model Act in
2009, which set forth important standards for case management program
services. The Case Management Model
Act outlines key components of a comprehensive case management program
that should be implemented at both the
federal and state levels.
Professional case managers are
uniquely positioned with their knowledge
and skills as experts in care coordination
to improve our healthcare system. This
is an important message that must be
delivered to our policymakers. With the
rise in the chronic condition population
and the need to control health care costs,
the Case Management Model Act sets
forth important program standards that
should be implemented in our twentyfirst century value based programs to
improve our healthcare system. ■
