Description

Transitions of Care are a key characteristic of health care. As a patient receives care at trauma, acute, sub-acute, rehab, home or long term levels, the transitions that occur between these must be successful for effective care.

ACMA’s members have a motivated focus on Transitions of Care and how effective they are for both patients and families, and more recently with respect to healthcare reform. ACMA recognizes that ensuring effective Transitions of Care can reduce preventable hospital readmissions and improve patient outcomes.

ACMA continues to work at a Congressional level educating members of Congress on the issues that our patients and case managers encounter, and how these issues can either support or inhibit a patient’s transition. With the help of nationally recognized leader and author of Transitions of Care, Dr. Eric Coleman, and ACMA have partnered to dedicate a Leadership Conference specifically focused on the education of case management leaders on Transitions of Care, what Transitions of Care mean to the practice of case management, and how case management professionals can better prepare for the increased focus on this area.

Currently, national standards for Transitions of Care do not guide all healthcare professionals, and ACMA is attempting, through initiatives like our Leadership Conference, to address the void in Transitions of Care education by building common understanding and national commitment.
