(DENVER, COLORADO, April 27, 2012) – As part of its ongoing mission to provide innovative professional development services to its members and advance the practice of hospital case management, the American Case Management Association (ACMA) has partnered with HCPro, Inc. to publish its journal, Collaborative Case Management.

ACMA National President, Linda Van Allen, announced the partnership today at the 2012 ACMA National Case Management Conference in Denver, CO.

"HCPro is a longtime supporter of ACMA, and we are very excited to enter this partnership," said Linda Van Allen, ACMA's National President. "HCPro is a recognized leader in health care education and publishing, and our association is confident that this collaboration will benefit ACMA members and case management practice by expanding and improving both parties' educational offerings."

HCPro has an established reputation of excellence in healthcare education and information that spans more than two decades. "Our partnership will leverage the deep expertise brought by both HCPro and ACMA to benefit case managers nationwide with the information and best practices that will help them to excel," said  Lauren McLeod, Editorial Director at HCPro, Inc. "We are proud to be the chosen publishing partner for ACMA's industry-leading publication."

The first issue jointly published by the two organizations will be delivered to ACMA members in late May. Though HCPro will assume the editorial process for Collaborative Case Management, it will remain ACMA's official publication and ACMA will continue to direct its content and provide final approval on all issues.

Through this partnership, the publication will appear in print format and its frequency will increase from quarterly to bimonthly. Starting with the July/August issue, ACMA's nurse, social worker and physician members will have the opportunity to earn free continuing education credits by reading the publication and passing the associated online quizzes.

HCPro currently publishes the Case Management Monthly newsletter and Case Management Weekly e-newsletter. As a part of the new partnership, HCPro will be offering special discount benefits to ACMA members on HCPro case management and Medicare compliance education and information products.
