CMSA Mission

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.

Definition

Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual's health care needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.

The defintion above was modified in 2010 as outlined in the revised 2010 CMSA Standards of Practice for Case Management.
