Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
The Case Management Society of America (http://www.cmsa.org) today launches registration for its 23rd Annual Conference & Expo, the sole health care event designed to deliver clinical, professional, regulatory and personal growth for care management professionals. This year’s event, themed Lighting the Path…Leading the Way, is set to be held in New Orleans, LA from June 25 – 28, 2013, at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
The conference & expo, in its 23rd running, promises a fresh experience for attendees, structured to meet the needs of the modern case management professional while maintaining its clinical education value. Concurrent sessions are presented in four main categories− Trends, Best Practices, Insights & Ideas and Master Series− allowing attendees to better prioritize and join sessions based on their career stage and continuing education (CE) needs. The new Ignite program focuses on relevant topics not covered in traditional clinical and regulatory sessions, including social media, mobile applications, first time attendees and a peer to peer networking session.
In addition to the event’s new program organization, CMSA plans to provide participants a more interactive, wired experience. The conference’s first mobile application launches in early spring; among many attributes, this technology enables attendees to plan in advance their Expo Hall experience, where over 250 exhibiting companies will showcase their forward-looking health care products and services. Attendees can also communicate and post social network updates through the application, facilitating both business and personal connections.
CMSA’s 2013 Conference also provides opportunities to explore new ideas and become immersed in the vibrant culture of New Orleans. Keynote presentations will offer unique perspectives on science, spirit and culture, featuring neuroanatomist and TED Talk presenter, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor; physician, author and Psychoneuroimmunology pioneer, Dr. Carl Hammerschlag; and world class musician, comedian and motivational speaker, Mike Rayburn. The event’s social gatherings are designed to expose attendees to the gastronomy and other exceptional viewpoints of the Crescent City.
“Case managers will light the path to health care that is safer, more effective and patient-centered, and our annual conference provides all of the elements necessary for case managers to continue to lead the way,” said Nancy Skinner, RN-BC, CCM, President of CMSA. “In addition to the educational and professional value that CMSA’s conference always delivers, this year’s event will emphasize the importance of expanding one’s potential and perspective, leading us to do our jobs better while also remembering to take care of ourselves in the process.”
