ACMA Announcements
Recently at the Leadership and Physician Advisor Conference, ACMA President Pamela Andrews announced that ACTS (Advanced Care Transitions Simulation) has been adopted at over 100 health facilities across the country. This marks a major milestone for the inclusion of simulation and scenario-based training for professionals in case management and transitions of care. The ACTS program was developed by ACMA to improve care transitions through team-based simulations of patient scenarios. Learn how ACTS can improve care transitions at your facility >>>
The Association of Physician Leadership (APLCM), in conjunction with the American Case Management Association (ACMA), announces the creation of the Care Management Physician Certification (CMPC).
