The Case Management Society of America (CMSA) is pleased to announce that the Call for Presentations for its 21st Annual Conference is open until August 31, 2010.
The CMSA Conference & Expo will be held in San Antonio, Texas, June 14 – 17, 2011, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Individuals are invited to submit proposals for presentations that focus on in-depth information and perspectives on complementary, integrative, and alternative trends in the health care industry, along with issues, practices, and professional challenges facing case managers, clinicians, managers, educators, and researchers.
Regarded as the leading annual case management event, CMSA’s Conference & Expo will be an experience that, in 2011, is designed to create opportunities for the health care community to explore, share, and collaborate on the latest ideas, tools, resources, and advances in information technology and the subsequent effects on patients, caregivers, providers, insurers, members of the health care team, and related professionals.
Proposals which deal constructively with the changing health care environment and/or represent cutting-edge innovations will be given top priority, as will proposals at the advanced level. CMSA is committed to creating the best conference with the assemblage of the highest quality speakers and experts in the health care arena.
“The CMSA Annual Conference and Exposition is the premier international event for cross-continuum health care management professionals,” said 2010 - 2011CMSA President, Teri Treiger, RN-C, MA, CCM, CCP. “This forum attracts a dynamic array of thought leaders, clinical professionals, product and service providers, and technology specialists. As patient-centered care, consumer engagement, and advancement of care coordination technology continue climbing on the health care horizon, so, too, do the educational needs of care management professionals. Our annual conference provides an unmatched opportunity to share information and network with this highly influential group of health care experts. CMSA highly anticipates the Call for Presentations as it provides our constituency the opportunity to showcase research outcomes, practice innovation, and advancement of care management practice.”
