The American Case Management Association (ACMA) is pleased to announce that it has joined the #GivingTuesday movement. Kicking off the giving season, #GivingTuesday is an annual global event celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
ACMA’s #GivingTuesday donation campaign will run the entire month of November. Donations will go toward ACMA’s advocacy efforts in support of case managers and transitions of care professionals around the nation.
“Healthcare case managers and transitions of care professionals advocate every day on behalf of their patients,” said Dianne Smitson, RN, MHA, ACM-RN, ACMA member and Senior Consulting Manager at IBM Watson Health. “It’s ACMA’s mission to ensure that proper legislation, policies and regulations are developed that will positively impact the practice of case management and transitions of care so that the best care possible can be provided. Donations to ACMA made through #GivingTuesday will help support ACMA as we continue to advocate on behalf of our profession and patients nationwide.”
In hospital and health care systems, case management is a collaborative practice model including patients, nurses, social workers, physicians, other practitioners, caregivers and the community. The case management process encompasses communication and facilitates care along a continuum through effective resource coordination. The goals of case management include the achievement of optimal health, access to care and appropriate utilization of resources, balanced with the patient’s right to self-determination.
