Spring Hill, Florida (October 9, 2018) – Oak Hill Hospital announces that in collaboration with the American Case Management Association (ACMA) and the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) it will celebrate National Case Management Week from October 7-13, 2018. This week is an opportunity to recognize the dedication, compassion and quality of patient care outcomes achieved by case managers across the healthcare continuum. The theme for this year is “Case Management: Improving Outcomes. Improving Care.”
Case managers provide collaborative clinical assessment, care coordination, patient education, counseling, case monitoring/clinical pathway management, discharge planning, resource management and patient advocacy. ACMA is the first case management association specifically designed to address the needs and concerns of health care delivery system case management and transitions of care professionals.
In conjunction with National Case Management Week, Wednesday, October 10, is Accredited Case Manager (ACMTM) Recognition Day. This day highlights case managers that have chosen to validate their competency in case management through achieving the nationally-recognized ACMTM certification. This achievement authenticates a case manager’s knowledge and expertise, as passage of both a competency exam and a clinical simulation test are required. In addition, certification demonstrates a commitment to the profession and to industry best practices.
Oak Hill Hospital currently has RN case managers and social workers within the facility. The significant contributions of our case managers impact our ability to provide the best patient care possible, positively affecting the patient experience while promoting best practices and cost-effective outcomes.
