American Case Management Association Celebrates Little-Known Group of Health Care Professionals for National Case Management Week
National Case Management Week kicks off Sunday, October 10.
LITTLE ROCK, ARK, USA, October 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – The American Case Management Association (ACMA) celebrates National Case Management Week starting October 10, 2021, to recognize dedication, compassion and quality patient outcomes achieved through healthcare case management and healthcare professional transitions across the country.
This year’s theme is Case Management: Care, Compassion, Community. âI can’t think of three better words to describe the essence of case management,â said Pamela Andrews, ACMA National Board Chair. âLike most healthcare professionals, case managers have faced extraordinary challenges this year. They are an unrecognized but vital group of providers and should be applauded for their contribution to patient care. “
Case management is a collaborative process, providing a unique and vital link between patients, providers and payers to improve health outcomes across the continuum of care for transitions of care. Case management professionals include nurses, social workers, physicians, educators, and hospital administrators who work in a variety of health care settings across the continuum of care.
In conjunction with National Case Management Week, Wednesday, October 13, is Accredited Case Manager (ACM) Appreciation Day. This day is in honor of case managers who have chosen to validate their competence by obtaining the ACM certification recognized at national level. This achievement authenticates the knowledge and expertise of a case manager by requiring passing both a competency exam and a clinical mock test. Certification demonstrates a commitment to the profession and industry best practices.
During National Case Management Week, ACMA encourages all healthcare organizations to recognize and support the practice of case management by promoting individual professionals who are making a difference. Throughout the week, local education, recognition and awareness events will be held across the country.
