Happy Case Management Week!
CMSA - Atlanta Chapter would like to wish all of our Members and all other Case Managers here in Georgia and everywhere a great week as we celebrate National Case Management Week of which has been proclaimed by our National Government and by our State Governor for which we greatly appreciate!
Please always know that what you do each day as a Case Manager makes a great difference!
CMSA has great news to share as we just received word from Senator Boozman’s office that S. Res 591- the National Case Management Week Resolution has passed in the Senate.
We have a lot to celebrate during National Case Management Week – October 9-15, 2016 – once again! None of this would be possible without your ongoing support and our collective public policy efforts to raise awareness on professional case management.
Thank you CMSA leaders: Mary McLaughlin-Davis, CMSA President; Cheri Lattimer, CMSA Chief Policy Officer; Kathleen Fraser, CMSA Executive Director; CMSA Board members; and CMSA Public Policy Committee members and Valerie Emmons who worked very closely to push this along before the Senate recess. CMSA will provide more information to the full membership on this but we wanted to share this great news with all of you today.
Together, we can impact public policy!

What's a Case Manager?
Case management services are provided by healthcare professionals working with people to identify issues and barriers that may prevent them from getting better and uncovering mutually agreed upon solutions to achieve their healthcare goals.
Case managers work with individuals and families to understand their illness or injury, what the individual/family needs to do to participate with the clinical team, follow the treatment plan and the path to reaching the best possible outcomes.

Case managers work in a variety of specialties, including health care, mental health care, addictions, long-term care, aging, HIV/AIDS, disabilities, occupational services, child welfare, and immigrant/refugee services. They are employed in the public, nonprofit, and for-profit sectors.
