Gain the resources you need for evidence-based case management practice
In the Summer of 2008 ACMA created the Hospital Case Management Research Series - a monthly report series that examines research to search for correlations related to key issues in Hospital Case Management. The reports leverage data from ACMA's extensive research, and incorporate data from external sources, including outcomes data. Ultimately, the reports provide a new level of information to drive evidence-based case management.
Subscription to the Hospital Case Management Research Series is an automatic benefit of Organizational Membership - obtained by hospitals with 10 or more members (or systems with 35 or more). Organizational members receive all of the benefits of full membership, as well as discounted annual dues of $115 per member.
Whether you subscribe to the Research Series and gain memberships for your case management staff, or gain the Research Series through your organization's commitment to staff membership, your organization, case management department, and patients will benefit.
