Session 1: ACMA and Case Management - The Future of Case Management

Greg Cunningham, MHA
CEO · Little Rock, AR

ABSTRACT:
The last ten years have been a time of growth and increasing importance for the role of nurses and social workers in health care. The case manager’s role will continue to evolve dramatically and ACMA has become an important and active association both locally and nationally. Establishing ACMA and case management as a crucial partner in health care innovation is both of strategic and outcome orientation. Using the last ten years of ACMA’s national research data and the evident trends (staffing, structure, function and national policy), the CEO of our national association will share his vision concerning the changing health care/case management environment and the importance of ACMA’s strategies to both advocate for and support its members.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand the history of the case management practice and ACMA
  2. Describe national research based trends regarding historical and future case management practice
  3. Correlate and compare individual and organizational preparation for future practice issues
