The Case Management Society of America (CMSA) will install five new members of its National Board of Directors this year, after recently completing its 2013 election. In one of the largest elections in the Association’s history, CMSA’s membership has elected a president-elect, secretary and three directors to begin serving 2, 3, or 4-year terms on the national board.
Mary McLaughlin Davis, RN, MSN, ACNS-BC, CCM of Bay Village, will serve as secretary of the board, beginning her term this June at CMSA’s 23rd Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans.
“I am truly honored to have been elected to the CMSA board of directors,” said McLaughlin Davis. “This is an exciting opportunity to help shape the delivery of healthcare to ensure our patients receive the best possible care.”
McLaughlin Davis is the director of case management at Cleveland Clinic’s Lakewood Hospital. She has been a certified case manager since 1994 working in the insurance industry, private case management, physical rehabilitation, and acute care. As a clinical nurse specialist, McLaughlin Davis is a strong proponent of providing safe patient care transitions, has taught clinical nursing, and promotes evidence based case management and nursing. She is also a third year student in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Ursuline College and is scheduled to graduate in 2013.
“Mary is a wonderful advocate for our patients and we are proud of her accomplishments,” said Robert Weil, MD, president of Lakewood Hospital. “She is a proven leader who provides quality, patient-centered care in this changing healthcare environment.”
CMSA is a membership organization of approximately 11,000 professional case managers, social workers and other health care professionals who work across the healthcare continuum to advocate for patients’ wellbeing and improved health outcomes. One of several initiatives the national board will focus on for 2013 and beyond is the recently launched CMAG 2012, an educational resource designed to provide case management professionals with assessment and intervention tools to improve patient medication and treatment adherence.
Other leaders to be installed to the 2013-2014 CMSA Board of Directors are from Texas, Arizona, and New Jersey.
