Last month’s article, “The Significant Healthcare Milestones and Trends in the Past Decade (2010 – 2020),” looked at the healthcare issues we faced in 2021 and at some of the dramatic challenges and accomplishments that occurred in the previous decade.

This article will describe the clinical and technology healthcare trends and predictions for 2022 including telehealth, SDoH, staffing shortages and more.
Chapter Connection

The Eastern Oklahoma Chapter of CMSA held their Annual Christmas Charity Luncheon and Fashion Show this past December and raised $6,000 for the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless.

"Every year our organization chooses a local charity to be our guest and speak at the luncheon, inspiring the crowd to donate money as the models walk the runway and among the tables with their beautiful attire and holiday baskets," says charity luncheon chairperson Alicia Conner-Todd. "The money we raise at the luncheon is then matched by the CMSA Chapter and presented to the local charity."

Attendance has been “sold out” and “standing room only.”

Previous Charity Fashion Shows have garnered tens of thousands of dollars for Wounded Warriors, Meals on Wheels, United Way and more.

Plans are already in motion for the 2022 EOK CMSA Christmas Charity Luncheon & Fashion Show. It will surely be a most wonderful time of the year!

Connect with your local CMSA chapter to get involved and grow your network. Visit the CMSA Find A Chapter page to find your community of case managers.
