ACMA recently established a transitions of care standards framework that applies to all health care settings to foster effective, high quality and efficient care transitions. Every standard presented describes both the structure and the services required to meet that standard. The standards help organizations assess, quantify and identify gaps in their current care transition work plan. This framework allows an organization to evaluate return on investment of care transitions efforts as a mechanism to reduce utilization and enhance quality and patient experience (value-based care ROI). Assess your team today. Learn More >>>
