CMSA Delivers Important Message to Congress: Case Management Services Improve Patient Care and Should Be Key Strategy in Health Care Reform Initiatives
Date:5/13/2009

>
  • Barriers to efficient case management should be reduced, such as promoting interstate nursing licensure compacts and promoting interoperable health IT platforms that include the treatment plans generated by case managers.

  • CMSA's Public Policy Day is an annual activity, and while the visits on Capitol Hill take place in a single day, this effort is only one component of a larger strategy to help CMSA members build continued awareness with legislators.

    "The energy and enthusiasm of Case Management leaders at the third annual CMSA Lobby Day was infectious to say the least," said President, Jeff Frater, RN, BSN. "What was even more exciting for me was the warm reception and recognition that we experienced when visiting with legislators and their legislative aides. There in an increasing recognition of the value case management brings to the health care experience and a ripe opportunity to influence the future as health care reform is a front burner issue with significant momentum."
