April 2, 2014 (Scottsdale, AZ)
Angel MedFlight is happy to announce that we are a returning Platinum sponsor, exhibitor and guest speaker at the American Case Manager Association (ACMA) 2014 Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois,
April 10th -13th. The conference is the country’s largest event specifically for health care delivery system case management and transitions of care professionals. Angel MedFlight will present a break-out session on Saturday April 12 from 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. entitled “The Critical Role of Case Managers in Air Medical Transport and Continuity of Care.”
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has significantly changed the way in which care is delivered in the U.S. As regulations are revised and new rules are released, health care delivery system case management and transition of care has become increasingly important to ensure an effective and efficient care process.
The conference will feature up to 24 hours of continuing education, more than 50 case management leaders and healthcare experts speaking on a variety of timely topics and more than 130 sponsors and exhibitors. Events will include Essential Education for Physician Advisors and Medical Directors in
Case Management, Pediatrics-Focused Sessions and Strategic Planning: Now That you are at the Table,
What Will You Serve? There will be continuing education classes, additional break-out sessions, a silent auction and closing party.
Angel MedFlight’s medical personnel themselves participate in continuing education on an annual basis, which includes:
- Annual airway management lectures
- Hazardous materials recognition & response
- Infection control
- Stress recognition & management
- Survival training
- Flight safety/egress training
- Critical care for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients
- Emergency/trauma care
- Invasive procedure labs including a minimum of 5 intubations per year
We believe strongly in the importance of events like the ACMA Conference to bring together professionals in the industry to learn and share best practices as well as the opportunity to dialogue in person about the needs of patients in transition of care.
