Expertise & Experience

The American Case Management Association is a committed leader in educating and developing leading practices for Health Care Delivery System Case Management and Transitions of Care Professionals. 


Thought Leadership

ACMA included representation from 15 organizations across all sectors and settings that influence navigation of our healthcare system. Together, those experts identified the quality program metrics aligned to each Transitions of Care Standard with a set of consensus measures to help monitor process and outcomes associated with implementation of the Transitions of Care Standards. The TOC standards can be tested and measured to assist providers, payers and all healthcare organizations in establishing processes for seamless coordination across the entire continuum of care, with the goal of achieving the best health outcomes.

The Committee Ensured the Standards are:

  • Realistic and forward-thinking
  • Able to be implemented across all care settings
  • Flexible enough to keep pace with rapidly evolving care delivery models
