About the Conference
In the ever-changing environment of reduced payments, dwindling resources, and the complexities of patients’ medical and social needs, health systems are challenged to augment risk mitigation strategies to support patient throughput and decrease wait times and readmissions while improving clinical outcomes and reduce costs for all providers. Effective care coordination requires integrated strategies and collaboration among all providers involved with a patient’s care to ensure successful patient throughput, discharge planning and care transition. Providing timely access to appropriate care and optimizing hospital flow are critical to increasing value for patients, clinicians, and health care systems.
Medicare penalties for patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge continue to cost hospitals millions of dollars annually. The prevention of avoidable readmissions has become a priority for patient safety and improved quality of life. Implementation of effective and coordinated discharge planning and post-acute care outreach programs can improve patient care and prevent costly hospital readmissions.
The 2018 Care Coordination and Discharge Planning Summit convenes industry experts to discuss best practices to improve care coordination, patient flow, and discharge planning processes across the care continuum. Attendees will be provided with the latest evidence and practice tools to improve collaboration among primary care, acute care services and post-acute care providers.
