Case Management Society of America
Rocky Mountain Chapter
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Case Management Society of America (CMSA), a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization. We are an interdisciplinary network of professionals working to advance the professional practice of Case Management along the Front Range of Colorado. Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy to help individuals meet their health and wellness objectives. Rocky Mountain CMSA supports professional collaboration across the health-care continuum and provides opportunities for professional growth so that we may improve the wellbeing of communities we serve.
Rocky Mountain CMSA is your professional resource for education, information sharing, career development and networking opportunities. We sponsor in-service dinners in February, April, June, August and December each year. Every October we host a conference with national and local speakers. We also use social media to keep members informed about issues important to the case management community.
As a community partner, Rocky Mountain CMSA takes its responsibilities seriously. That is why at every meeting we make a charitable contribution valued at $500 to a local agency.

CAREER & KNOWLEDGE PATHWAYS
Educational Quality, Content and Case Management Skill Sets
CMSA’s CKP educational program fills a longstanding gap in case management education. Theoretical content has been available for many years, but practical instruction of basic concepts of case management, as well as skills opportunities, have been left to the individual case manager and employers to determine and deliver. These circumstances have led to great variation in educational quality, content, and case management skill sets across the healthcare continuum.
