National Case Management Week 2021

About National Case Management Week

National Case Management Week 2021 (NCMW2021) is October 10-16, 2021! Join us as we recognize and show appreciation for case management and transitions of care professionals across the country. This year's ACMA theme will be announced later this summer. ACMA hopes you will celebrate NCMW 2021 and recognize the dedication, compassion and patient care outcomes achieved by case managers in your organization. Across all care settings, case managers are making the difference!

2020 was different. Health care professionals from across the country were, and continue to be, challenged by a multitude of obstacles. Your efforts were appreciated as evidenced by the celebrations we saw through our social media feeds and local news affiliates. With each challenge we have heard countless stories of case management professionals stepping up, not back, to positively impact patients across the care continuum. Thank you for your efforts, your expertise, your dedication and your compassion.
