Angel MedFlight puts Case Managers First in the Second City

Just back from a national case management conference, Angel MedFlight is back on the road this week connecting with case managers on a regional level.  We’ll be attending and exhibiting at the Case Management Society of America’s Chicago Chapter annual conference.

CMSA Chicago bills its 20th annual conference as “The Must-Attend Case Management Event of the Year.” Angel MedFlight sees it that way too, as it provides attendees an excellent opportunity for education, networking and professional outreach.

Angel MedFlight’s Jackie Martinez says a regional conference like this one “gives us the chance to really get that one-on-one time with case managers. We get feedback from case managers who have actually called us.”

Case managers have an important relationship with Angel MedFlight as they are the ones who streamline the process when a patient is in need. Martinez says, “they are the middle-man between the patient and the provider.” And Martinez says with its team of highly qualified flight coordinators,  Angel MedFlight simplifies the process for the case managers.

That simplification is the heart of Angel MedFlight’s One-Touch Promise®. A promise that assures that every detail is handled. At Angel MedFlight, we commit all our resources to guide the process from beginning to end. Our flight coordinators are experienced case managers and licensed registered nurses.

We give important aid to case managers by making the phone calls and submitting insurance documents. That assistance in coordinating air ambulance service allows the case managers to focus on their patients.

Just how important are these regional conferences to the world’s leading air ambulance service? Angel MedFlight has  already attended case managers conferences this year in Columbus, Ohio; Anaheim, Calif., San Antonio and San Diego. Martinez says that regional conferences usually have between 100-200 case managers attending. Chicago ranks highly because over 350 have registered for the event.

The CMSA was founded in 1990 and is the leading non-profit association dedicated to the support and development of the case management profession. The Chicago chapter has been affiliated with the National Chapter of CMSA since 1993.

The conference will feature national level speakers with the keynote address delivered by CMSA National President Nancy Skinner, RN-BC, CCM.

CMSA Chicago is going with a Roaring 20’s theme and their brochure shouts, “Come ROAR with us at our 20th.”  Martinez says she’s excited about the 20’s motif and urges all in attendance to stop by the Angel MedFlight booth for some fun giveaways.
