Caseload data from 2017 National Hospital CM Survey

The flagship project of ACMA practice research in Hospital Case Management, the Survey is conducted through a biennial randomized study of over 400 hospital Case Management departments, and produces 95% confidence level data on over 75 elements of the practice. The data has been used in countless organizations around the country for benchmarking, resource justification and practice improvement. ACMA conducts and publishes extensive secondary research combining Survey data with sources, such as CMS-reported outcomes data.

Scope of Services & Standards of Practice for Hospital/Health System Case Management

In 2013, ACMA added to its previously developed Standards of Practice the newly developed Scope of Services for Hospital/Health System Case Management to create a comprehensive reference document. As case management has evolved, the scope of responsibilities for most departments has increased, and case management has often come to be seen as capable of producing positive solutions and outcomes for a wide variety of hospital needs. This document is not intended to be a formula for Case Management; rather it is a guide when referencing potential scope of practice.
