Registration Open for The Case Management Society of America’s 28th Annual Conference & Expo

Registration opens this week for the 28th Annual Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Conference & Expo, the only case management conference that stretches across the entire healthcare continuum. The conference will be held June 19- 23, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. Professionals will convene to elevate their careers and experience an event focused on case managers, proudly proclaiming “We Are Case Management.”

This year’s content focuses on case managers and their roles in advocacy, leadership, as well as influencers and problem solvers! In support of case managers, CMSA continues to forge the future for this rapidly expanding healthcare profession. Conference main, concurrent and poster sessions are designed to spark conversations and innovations, provide strategies, solutions and practical tools to create successful initiatives for professional case managers and case management systems.

“CMSA is the leader of innovation in case management practice. We lead in establishing standards of practice, and also in informing legislators, health care systems, and health care plans to establish a viable case management model,” said CMSA President Mary McLaughlin-Davis DNP, RN, MSN, ACNS-BC, CCM. “We look forward to welcoming our vendor partners who provide us with the latest in technology, services and educational opportunities; and to renewing our relationships with members across the country and across the world.”

Concurrent and poster presentations provide a variety of continuing education opportunities, which are based on rigorous market research to provide the best programs possible. The focus this year is on several key practice settings, including acute care, workers’ compensation, discipline-specific case management, long term care, leadership, population health and managed care, community health programs and the patient-centered medical home.

Educational sessions will give attendees an opportunity to build successful teams of care and consider what those changes mean across the continuum of care for all stakeholders. Additionally, sessions will address the very important issue of defining successful initiatives, establishing best practices to demonstrate impact and improve outcomes in every aspect of the patient’s healthcare journey, through every transition of care. CMSA continues to be the known experts in transition of care worldwide, and this continuity of care is intertwined throughout the conference, just as it is intertwined into all aspects of true case management.

This year a leadership track has been added to empower case managers to lead not only themselves but also their colleagues and peers through the areas of education, certification, mentoring, preceptorship and experience. The content will also explore the paths to advanced case management – how case managers should be properly educated, trained and certified to meet the complex needs of all patients, healthcare systems and plans whether private or government.

The 2018 event is expected to welcome well over 2,500 healthcare professionals to the conference, which includes additional pre-conference educational activities, certification courses, an opening destination event as well as a special military event for our active military, VA and DOD case managers. Over 250 companies will welcome attendees at CMSA’s 2018 Expo, providing information and demonstrations regarding the most current products and services. Attendees will part with new resources and connections to advance their abilities to recommend and implement the latest technologies when they return to their practice.

Three keynote presenters will engage, entertain and inspire attendees through their unique and diverse perspectives. This year’s keynote presentations opens with Dr. Travis Stork, a board-certified emergency medicine physician and Emmy-nominated host of the award-winning talk show, The Doctors. The second keynote, Dr. Allan Hamilton, MD, FACS, is a best-selling author of the books “Lead With Your Heart” and The Scalpel and The Soul”. The conference closes with the motivational and award-winning journalist Dr. Rick Rigsby, President and CEO of Rigsby Communications, whose best-selling book, “Lessons From A Third Grade Dropout,” chronicles the life lessons he learned and continues to follow, from his father, a third grade dropout.

CMSA executive director, Kathleen Fraser, remarked, “The CMSA conference is special and unique for so many reasons. High caliber and timely educational offerings are just the tip of the iceberg; at our conference, there are opportunities to bond with industry colleagues who have your same struggles, goals and successes. You can connect with the companies that make the tools and resources you use (or need) in your daily practice. Join us for our annual event in energetic and upbeat Chicago to truly understand why CMSA Annual is not just an event – it’s an experience.”

The conference provides for the professional case manager to create her own unique experience with seven concurrent session blocks offered in addition to the keynote sessions and symposia. Through educational content, resources, exhibits, technology, public policy, cultural excursions and peer-to-peer networking, the attendee can have a custom experience which meets all his or her professional needs.
