Discount on Hospital Discharge Improvement Guide: How to Close Six Key Care Gaps and Reduce Readmissions

The hospital discharge is not a finite period of time but rather an ongoing process requiring planning and precision. Without a coordinated approach, the exit from the hospital can be fraught with risk and result in adverse events and unnecessary readmissions.

The Hospital Discharge Improvement Guide: How to Close Six Key Care Gaps and Reduce Readmissions delivers dozens of tactics to tighten the six major gaps in the hospital discharge process:

  • Education
  • Test Management
  • Follow-Up & Discharge
  • Communication
  • Physician Accountability
  • Health Literacy

Contributing presenter Susan Shepard, director of patient safety education at The Doctors Management Company, suggests skills and interventions that health plans, hospitals and physician practices can use to improve each of these critical areas of the hospital discharge process. She also presents two key mechanisms for encouraging patients and caregivers to participate in and manage their care.

15% Discount In this 25-page special report, Shepard also shares best practices from five hospital discharge-focused interventions that are already reducing readmissions for hospitals and health plans around the country:
  • Boston University's Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge);
  • BOOST toolkit from the Society of Hospital Medicine;
  • Transforming Care at the Bedside from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI);
  • Hospital to Home (H2H) from the American College of Cardiology; and
  • Care Transitions intervention from Dr. Eric Coleman.
