ARE YOU READY TO CELEBRATE? WE ARE!
National Case Management Week is October 11-17, 2020. It’s a time to celebrate YOU, our field, and the progress we have made together. This year, our field has been challenged by an unforeseen pandemic to step up in ways we never imagined and bridge expansive gaps. Every single day, we’re telling the world that Case Managers Can!
Our logo this year says just that. The line within it represents the determination, resolution, and the ability and willingness to rise not only to the occasion but also above the occasion that embodies Professional Case Managers.
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be asking what the line means to YOU. We have big plans in store so stay tuned and watch your email and the CMSA social media platforms for updates! Click here for more details.

Definition of Case Management
Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.
Philosophy of Case Management
Case management is not a profession in itself, but an area of practice within one’s profession. Its underlying premise is that when an individual reaches the optimum level of wellness and functional capability, everyone benefits: the individuals being served, their support systems, the health care delivery systems and the various reimbursement sources.
Case management serves as a means for achieving client wellness and autonomy through advocacy, communication, education, identification of service resources and service facilitation. The case manager helps identify appropriate providers and facilities throughout the continuum of services, while ensuring that available resources are being used in a timely and cost-effective manner in order to obtain optimum value for both the client and the reimbursement source. Case management services are best offered in a climate that allows direct communication between the case manager, the client, and appropriate service personnel, in order to optimize the outcome for all concerned.
