ISSUE THEME

PUBLIC POLICY AND THE
HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT
Public policy is viewed as the standing decision of an organization. It reflects the beliefs of
an administration and provides the direction and framework for the philosophy and mission
of our government agencies. CMSA revised the Standards of Practice in 2016, and the Case
Management Model Act this year, to inform our government on the importance of case
management to population health.

CMSA: Reflection on Achievement and Moving Forward in 2018 9
BY KATHLEEN FRASER, MSN, MHA, RN-BC, CCM, CRRN

You, our members, are why we exist as an organization. As the executive director of
CMSA and owner of Fraser Imagineers, I am so proud to share with you how hard at work
we have been over the past year to improve how we support members and the value of
every area of membership.

Revised Case Management Model Act
Promotes National Standards 12
BY GARRY CARNEAL, JD, MA; KATHLEEN FRASER, MSN, MHA, RN-BC, CCM, CRRN;
AND CHRISS WHEELER RN, MSN, CCM

At the heart of most population health management programs are trained professionals
who have accumulated years of experience in coordinating care, engaging patients and
much more. As we all know, those professionals are licensed case managers.

The National Nurse Act 18
BY CATHY LODICO, RN, MS, CCM

Like the other case managers with whom I have had the opportunity to work, I am
passionate about public policy, especially when it focuses on best practices that have
the potential to better serve the clients and families. This is the case with the National
Nurse Act, a bill that is intended to provide leadership aimed toward preventing chronic
conditions that create a huge economic, physical and psychosocial toll for all of us.

Changes to the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC):
Critical Information for the Nurse Case Manager 21
BY JIM PUENTE, MS, MJ, CAE

Under the NLC, an eligible nurse with primary state of residence in a compact state is able
to hold one multistate license issued by the home state granting the nurse the authority
to practice in any NLC state in-person or via telepractice.

Case Managers Can Make a Difference
BY MARY MCLAUGHLIN-DAVIS, DNP, ACNS-BC, NEA-BC, CCM

I was fortunate enough to be chosen to participate on the CMSA
Public Policy Committee in the past, and I learned how influential
case managers are with administrative decision makers. Over
time I participated in discussions about the Nurse Compact Act,
the TeleMed Act and The Medicare Transitional Care Act, among
other pieces of pending legislation. I also made trips to Capitol Hill
with CMSA and have visited the offices of our representatives.

Oh, The Places Case Managers Have Been...
And Where You'll Go!
BY CATHERINE M. MULLAHY, RN, BS, CRRN, CCM,
AND JEANNE BOLING, MSN, CRRN, CDMS, CCM

Fast forward to 2017 and what it means today to be a case
manager. Let's start by saying, the opportunities are as wide open
and long as the journey taken by our predecessors starting back
around the turn of the 19th century.

BY CHRISS WHEELER, RN, MSN, CCM

Over the past couple of years, CMSA has transitioned from using the title "case manager"
to "professional case manager." In the current climate of healthcare and even the
non-medical industry, we find the title of case manager emerging in various forms.
