Sponsored by: Cross-Continuum Care Transitions: A Standardized Approach to Post-Acute Patient Hand-Offs

A Care Transitions Task Force at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) was charged in 2012 with developing a multi-disciplinarian, cross-continuum approach to improving care transitions...not an easy task for an organization that had previously operated with a siloed approach by each hospital service. During this February 26th webinar now available for replay, Dr. Michelle Schneidermann, associate clinical professor of medicine for the division of hospital medicine at University of California San Francisco/SFGH and medical director of the San Francisco Department of Public Health Medical Respite and Sobering Center, shared the key achievements of the Care Transitions Task Force and its impact on readmission rates.
