ANCCFor the American Nurses Association’s (ANA), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Information Concepts developed the Magnet Recognition Application which supports the Case Management during the evaluation and certification process for outstanding nursing facilities.

After health care facilities apply for accreditation, they are evaluated by a panel based on a set of criteria, with the documentation submitted to the ANCC Magnet Board for approval. Documentation collected throughout the process includes applications, facility demographic data, facility policies and procedures, documentation supporting evidence of successfully completing the magnet standards, and evaluator reports. The Case Management portion of the application supports authoring for standards, assignment of evaluators, and management of the application process.
