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

The ACMA's official definition of Case Management, as approved by our membership in April 2020, is as follows:

"Case Management in health care delivery systems is a collaborative practice including patients, caregivers, nurses, social workers, physicians, payers, support staff, other practitioners and the community. The Case Management process facilitates communication and care coordination along a continuum through effective transitional care management. Recognizing the patient’s right to self-determination, the significance of the social determinants of health and the complexities of care, the goals of Case Management include the achievement of optimal health, access to services, and appropriate utilization of resources."
