Transition of Care Standards Created by Case Management Association
Posted on Friday, March 1, 2019 9:47 PM
The American Case Management Association (ACMA) has created the first multi-setting, inter-professional National Transitions of Care Standards endorsed by an Executive Steering Committee composed of representation from payer, provider, and other organizations.
The Transitions of Care Standards have been designed with input from fifteen collaborating agencies representing ten practice settings: acute care, primary care, ambulatory, home care and hospice, managed care pharmacy, healthcare pharmacy, primary care, long term care, behavioral health and payers.
Patient-centered, value-based models of care require both quality of care and cost accountabilities. “These Transitions of Care Standards are longitudinal in nature – recognizing the nature of a transition cannot be defined by one practice setting and both quality and cost need to be measured. Our Executive Committee created consensus measures that allow any of the practice settings, provider or payer, to crosswalk industry metrics to each standard,” says L. Greg Cunningham, CEO of ACMA. For the safety of patients, it is vital that each case management/transitions of care professional understands their care delivery system, the payer and their care partners that represent other interdependent continuum settings.
