It is with great excitement and pleasure that I invite you to CMSA’s 22nd Annual Conference & Expo in the “City by the Bay”—San Francisco!
Our theme for this year’s conference: “Spanning the Waves of Change in an Ocean of Opportunities,” underscores what an exciting time it is to be in health care, especially as a case management professional. Transformational changes are happening at an unprecedented rate in terms of new ways of delivering health care, including significant shifts in practice towards truly collaborative, patient-centered, quality-driven models of care.
These waves of change are creating oceans of opportunities for the case management profession. CMSA knows that case managers are the bridge that will allow all the key stakeholders—patients, health care professionals, payors, and policymakers—to safely and successfully span these waves of change in our ever-changing world of health care.
So, come join us in beautiful San Francisco, and be a part of CMSA’s 22nd Annual Conference & Expo to learn more about these waves of change and the opportunities for your professional practice. Keeping up with new models of care, new rules and regulations, new research and evidence-based practice, and new forms of technology are an evergrowing challenge. CMSA’s Annual Conference helps meet that challenge by providing a myriad of focused educational sessions, symposiums, poster presentations, and other learning opportunities. You will enjoy four days packed with professional networking opportunities with fellow colleagues and thought leaders in the field of case management. You will also have ample time to visit with more than 300 exhibitors, and enjoy some fabulous food in our legendary Exhibition Hall.
CMSA’s Annual Conference is known as the premier educational event for the case management industry. Being a part of the conference, and taking advantage of all it has to offer, will enable you to keep pace with changes; and raise your awareness, understanding, and knowledge of best practices and innovations in case management today.
Our San Francisco conference promises to be our best conference yet! Join us in June, and learn how you can enhance your professional career by Spanning the Waves of Change in an Ocean of Opportunities!
