CMSA Educational Webinar Series
You Chose Case Management – How Are You Defining Your Success?
Monday, May 16, 2016
12:30 pm - 1:15pm CST
Case management services have taken the forefront of improving care coordination, patient advocacy and managing resources. But finding the balance between value-added service & outcome based programs plus including patient-centered personalization is the challenge our profession is facing today. In an effort to build not only sustainability but consistency of case management services, CMSA in partnership with Wolters Kluwer, has completed a major revisions to the CMSA Core Curriculum. This new textbook will be released at the CMSA 2016 Annual Conference. This session will highlight what to look for in this new addition and considerations we all need to understand as we move closer and closer to demanding attribution for payment and documentation support for the services we provide as qualified professional case managers.
1) Identify revisions and changes to the Core Curriculum that will help case managers meet the focus of the ACA
2) Discuss why we need to provide “value-based” plus “patient-centered personalization” case management services.
3) Assess what the key deliverables are for a strong case management program

"How to Provide Pre-Op/Coordination Visits to Increase Market Share
A 90-Minute Lunch & Learn Audio Conference by Elizabeth E. Hogue, Esq.
Thursday, April 28, 2016
1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EST
Physicians who regularly perform elective surgeries, especially joint replacements, are eager for home health, private duty agencies and HME suppliers to establish relationships with patients prior to their surgeries. Many hospitals perceive that patients will have better outcomes and avoid readmissions if home care providers establish relationships with them prior to their surgeries.
The provision of pre-op/coordination visits raises a number of legal issues:
- Can these types of visits be performed from a legal point of view?
- What does the OIG say about them?
- When can visits be performed?
- What requirements must be met before visits can be made?
- What are the types of activities in which providers can engage during pre-op/coordination visits?
- Who can perform visits? Licensed or unlicensed personnel?
- Is reimbursement available?
The issue of patients' right to freedom of choice after pre-op/coordination visits will also be addressed.
Specific information will be provided about how to handle this issue so that providers limit the number of visits to patients who do not return to them following surgery.
This will be a very practical, hands-on presentation. The goal is to teach providers how to use these types of visits to increase market share.
