On May 9, 2012, the 3rd Annual Case In Point Platinum Awards Luncheon will take place at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to recognize the most successful and innovative case management programs and individuals working to improve healthcare across the care continuum.
The first program to bring together healthcare professionals across the spectrum of care coordination, the Case In Point Platinum Awards celebrates the top picks from 22 categories that represent a comprehensive range of professions and programs in healthcare delivery producing real change in day-to-day operations and outcomes.
“In the current healthcare landscape, case management and care coordination play an integral role in the nationwide effort to improve the delivery of health services, decrease unnecessary hospital readmissions, and ultimately, lower costs for consumers and health organizations,” said Anne Llewellyn, RN-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN, editor in chief of Case In Point magazine.
The Case In Point Platinum Award categories celebrate top achievements in diverse settings, including the emergency department program, disability management, Medicaid case management, best social work and others. Dozens of individuals will also be recognized for their outstanding achievements in creating or leading programs that improve the outcomes of patients.

During the luncheon, winners from each finalist category will be announced and will receive Platinum Awards. Additionally, a special edition of Case In Point magazine will showcase all winners and honorable mentions. Case In Point is one of the most widely read publications in the case management industry, providing healthcare professionals with original, comprehensive and insightful news, trends and information.
The luncheon keynote speaker is Alfred Lewis, founder and president of the Disease Management Purchasing Consortium International. Lewis will use his humor and non-traditional style to share his insights on the topic of outcomes in disease management and population health.
