New Caseload Capacity Calculator Free to NASW Members
NASW is pleased to announce the launch of the Caseload Capacity Calculator (CLC). This software, developed by Consulting Management Innovators, Inc. (CMI), builds on the Caseload Concept Paper and Matrix published by NASW and the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) in 2008 and on a 2011 survey of NASW members. From that foundation, a team of clinicians and analysts developed software that provides comparison data with case managers in similar settings.
The Caseload Capacity Calculator is available, free of charge, to all case managers through December, 31, 2011. Thereafter, it will remain free to NASW and CMSA members, though nonmembers may continue to use the tool for a fee. This first version of the CLC is designed for health plan and inpatient acute settings. However, during the public access period, case managers of any setting may try the tool by selecting one of three test settings during setup. CMI hopes to develop calculator software for case managers in other settings in the future.
