Featured Webinar Replay:

Improving Transitions of Care Between Hospital and SNF

Excerpt from presentation by Carolyn Holder, manager of transitional care for Summa Health System:

"We wanted to create a network of preferred skilled nursing providers with the common goal of reducing fragmentation of care and redundancy of care. We were driven also to improve the discharge planning process, to decrease our length of stay and to avoid unnecessary readmissions." Watch the webinar today or order a training DVD or CD-ROM.
