Scope of Services & Standards of Practice for Hospital/Health System Case Management

In 2013, ACMA added to its previously developed Standards of Practice the newly developed Scope of Services for Hospital/Health System Case Management to create a comprehensive reference document. As case management has evolved, the scope of responsibilities for most departments has increased, and case management has often come to be seen as capable of producing positive solutions and outcomes for a wide variety of hospital needs. This document is not intended to be a formula for Case Management; rather it is a guide when referencing potential scope of practice.
