Little Rock, AR
- Located in Kissimmee-St. Cloud, FL, the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center is the site of the Case Management Society of America's (CMSA) 15th Annual Conference & Expo, June 21-25, 2005.
As the premiere association for the advancement of integrated care management, CMSA's mission has never been more focused on the goal of ensuring that whether the term used is care coordinator, disease manager, health navigator, health coach, utilization manager, discharge planner, or case manager – it's the integrated, team-based approach that will craft the future success of healthcare.
With an expected attendance of over 2,000 professionals from broad and diverse backgrounds, this year's theme "Past Success … Future Significance – Strategic Forecast for Quality Healthcare" signifies the goal of this year's conference to enable those involved in coordinated care delivery to engage their unique abilities to move from "what is" toward "what can be" in the integrated medical care management industry.
As recent years have solidified even further the realization that health care is improved with a team-based approach – CMSA's opening keynote speaker, Patrick Lencioni, will be addressing this issue head on. To quote, "To become a cohesive team, a group of leaders must learn to commit to decisions when there is less than perfect information available, and when no natural consensus develops. And because perfect information and natural consensus rarely exist, the ability to commit becomes one of the most critical behaviors of a team." Cited by Ken Blanchard as "fast defining the next generation of leadership thinkers", CMSA is excited to celebrate its 15th Year Anniversary with this remarkable opportunity to hear Patrick Lencioni!
With over 20 sponsored symposium on core clinical areas, 30 cutting-edge breakout sessions, 12 poster presentations, four general sessions and over 250 exhibitors – CMSA is raising the bar toward developing a powerful synergy that promises to promote professional growth, enhance critical thinking skills, augment evidence-based research, and create stronger patient advocacy skills in the role of improving healthcare quality.
