About ACMA

Mission

To be THE Association for Health Care Delivery System Case Management and Transitions of Care (TOC) Professionals

(Approved April 11, 2013)

Goals

1) Provide innovative professional development services:

  • Mentoring
  • Educational Forums
  • Resource Information

2) Create new opportunities for networking

3) Influence the policies, laws and other issues related to the practice of Case Management

Definition of Case Management

In an effort to provide clarity to the profession, ACMA and CCMC have aligned on and approved a common definition of case management:

"Case Management is a dynamic process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates to improve outcomes, experiences, and value. The practice of case management is professional and collaborative, occurring in a variety of settings where medical care, mental health care, and social supports are delivered. Services are facilitated by diverse disciplines in conjunction with the care recipient and their support system. In pursuit of health equity, priorities include identifying needs, ensuring appropriate access to resources/services, addressing social determinants of health and facilitating safe care transitions. Professional case managers help navigate complex systems to achieve mutual goals, advocate for those they serve, and recognize personal dignity, autonomy, and the right to self-determination."
