ABOUT CMSA

The Case Management Society of America is the leading membership association providing professional collaboration across the healthcare continuum to advocate for patients' wellbeing and improved health outcomes by fostering case management growth and development, impacting health care policy, and providing evidence-based tools and resources.

Care managers are advocates who help patients understand their current health status, what they can do about it and why those treatments are important.  In this way, care managers are catalysts by guiding patients and providing cohesion to other professionals in the health care delivery team, enabling their clients to achieve goals more effectively and efficiently.

Case Management is:

A collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual's and family's comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.

CMSA's Strategic Vision

"Case managers are recognized experts and vital participants in the care coordination team who empower people to understand and access quality, efficient health care.
