Fort Wayne, IN, October 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Vibra Hospital Fort Wayne joins with the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) and American Case Management Association, as well as the local CMSA and ACMA chapters, in recognizing National Case Management Week during the week of October 14 – 20, 2012.
This weeklong celebration serves to recognize case managers, to educate the public about case management and to increase recognition of the significant contribution of case managers to quality health care for patients, families, health care providers, and payers. Case Managers provide coordinated services with entities ranging from health care facilities, managed care organization, military installations, employers markets and care and disease management companies.
There are two Case Management Associations that support national and international organization of case managers, and health care professionals, committed to promoting the growth and value of case management, and to support the evolving needs of the case management professional. Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.
Vibra Hospital Fort Wayne is taking advantage of National Case Management Week because it is an effective way to spotlight the invaluable roles and positive contributions of case management professionals. As case management strives to support patients and their families as they navigate the healthcare system, it also decreases the fragmentation of services; encourages health team communication; and contributes significantly to patient safety, quality of life, and cost-efficient management of resources.
“At Vibra Hospital Fort Wayne, we appreciate the contributions of our case managers in providing quality of care and service to our patients and their family and we recognize the excellent work of all case managers in the communities we are fortunate to serve,” said John Pierson, CEO Vibra Hospital Fort Wayne. "We are celebrating National Case Management Week at Vibra Hospital Fort Wayne by promoting the following events: exhibit at the CMSA Fort Wayne Chapter Seminar, 'Piecing Together the Case Management Plan,' Tuesday October 9, 2012 from 7:00 am to 5:00pm at the Public Safety Academy of Northeast Indiana."
