Welcome to the website of the New York State Care Management Coalition. The Coalition’s goal is to offer care managers across New York State the opportunity to become one voice on many issues facing both the clientele and the agencies we all serve. We as a Coalition, drawing from the voice of care managers and their agencies statewide, lead advocacy issues and use our strength and numbers to drive change on how to best provide the vital care to the individuals we serve. The Coalition continues to provide quality, state-of-the art educational programming, information and networking opportunities on best practices in the care management field.
Our membership has grown in numbers and the interest in our annual conference is growing each year. Each year our conference attracts nearly 800 participants from the behavioral health care management community and is the largest behavioral health conference in NYS. Health Homes, PPS/DSRIP initiatives, integrated care projects and health care systems, all point to a need for care management. In the many committees and sub committees I am part of, the common denominator in all the new initiatives seems to be care management, care coordination and boots on the ground assistance. These are the interventions that move the needle and get people to the outcomes they hope for.
The Board of Directors hopes that you will find this site as a resource to you and your colleagues by providing information on our Annual Conference and other care management issues. Please take a look at our board listing. The Coalition’s Board members in your region are willing to assist you both personally and professionally regarding New York’s care management system.
The Board is always looking for individuals to serve; please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and your intent to become more involved. In addition to meeting with representatives from NYS OMH and DOH, the Board meets monthly via conference call and/or in Albany to stay in tuned to the ever changing environment we are all part of. We encourage you to email questions, articles of interest or share educational opportunities to our headquarters in Albany at email@example.com. Thank you for your continued service to care management and more importantly, to those we serve.
