Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) September 26, 2016
Registration opens this week for the 27th 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 26-June 30, 2017 at the Austin Convention Center. Professionals will convene to elevate their careers and learn more about the “Transformation of Case Management,” set in one of the most vibrant, eclectic cities in the country: Austin, TX.
This year’s content focuses on how the transformation of case management has affected every element of the profession. Concurrent and poster presentations provide a variety of continuing education opportunities, with a focus on helping attendees investigate the transformation of case management programs in the hospital, long term care, workers’ compensation, community health programs, patient centered medical homes and other practice settings.
In addition, sessions will enable attendees to address the need for leadership within a population health model, including specifics on how to empower case managers, colleagues and peers through the areas of education, practice, mentoring and experience. Tactics will be given to help them analyze the building of care teams and what those changes mean across the continuum of care, and for the entire care team. Attendees will also discuss collaborative strategies and successful initiatives for improving practice in various settings using data to demonstrate impact and/or outcomes. Finally, the content will also examine and describe current and emerging advancement in technology and innovations and how they improve treatment adherence as well as elevate the practice of case management.
The 2017 event is expected to welcome nearly 2,000 convention attendees and healthcare professionals to the conference, which includes additional pre and post-conference destination educational activities as well as a special military event. Over 200 companies will welcome attendees at CMSA’s 2017 Expo, providing information and demonstrations regarding the most current products and services. Attendees will part with new resources and connections that will advance their abilities to recommend and implement the latest technologies when they return to their practice.
Keynote presenters will engage, entertain and inspire attendees through their unique and diverse perspectives on numerous topics, including leadership perspectives from acute care to the broader healthcare community. This year’s keynote presentations feature Dr. Mary D. Naylor who will present, “Transforming the Course: Enhancing the Patient Care Team for Optimal Transitions in Care.” Dr. Stuart Robertshaw, A.K.A Dr. Humor, will provide valuable information while also entertaining the audience. The conference will close with motivational speaker, Jonathan Mann.
