Last week, the Case Management Society of America held its annual conference. Two papers were released that all case managers can use and share with physicians, health systems, payers, and case managers from every sector.

The paper is titled Promoting Successful Outcomes in Primary Care. Here is the link to access the paper. https://cmsa.org/promoting-successful-outcomes-in-making-care-primary

This paper highlights the critical role of case management and professional case managers (PCMs) in augmenting care coordination and patient outcomes across primary care organizations and providers.

The paper describes the characteristics of a successful case management practice context based on the three Tracks of the MCP Model, PCMs’ role responsibilities supporting care interventions for people with multiple chronic conditions and HRSNs, and the application of the Case Management Society of America’s (CMSA) standards of practice—all in primary care settings.

This paper also provides key evidence-based information demonstrating potential value for the MCP Model and guidance for key strategies that primary care organizations and providers are encouraged to adopt.

The second document is a statement from CMSA on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEBI). A new committee is led by two long-time case managers: Michael B. Garrett, MS, CCM, and Dr. Ellen Fink-Samnick, DBH, MSW, LCSW, ACSW, CCM, CCTP, CRP, FCM.

The committee’s goal is to help case managers and all stakeholders better understand our role in improving the environment for our patients and their caregivers, the workforce, and all stakeholders across the care continuum through DEIB.

I hope you will take time to read each of these documents and share them so others can be informed.

I would also like to congratulate and welcome Janet Coulter as President of the Case Management Society of America. Janet will do a great job leading the national board and growing CMSA, THE professional organization for all case managers.

Follow CMSA, your professional organization to be up to date with all of the work the National Board is doing to help each case manager be the best that they can be.

Have a good week!
