SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent changes in the American health care system affect the delivery of care. As regulations are revised and new rules released, case management and transitions of care have become increasingly important to ensure an effective and efficient care process.
To help educate critical care partners on the role of air ambulance services and the continuum of care, Angel MedFlight staff will present, "The Critical Role of Case Managers in Air Medical Transport and Continuity of Care," at this year's conference of the American Case Managers Association (ACMA) in Chicago. The break-out session will be held Saturday, April 12 from 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. Angel MedFlight, a platinum-level sponsor of the event, will also be an exhibitor.
