Care Transition Management: Strategies for Effective Patient Handoffs

With focused attention on the patient handoff process, Regions Hospital has watched its readmission rates decrease from over 11 percent in 2009 to 9.5 percent for all patients and achieve readmission rates for 2012 that are better than its expected results, as predicted by modeling outside of the organization.

Cullman Regional Medical Center's award-winning "Good to Go" recorded hospital discharge instructions has resulted in a 15 percent decline in readmission rates for patients who received recorded discharge instructions and a 58 percent increase in HCAPS satisfaction scores.

During Care Transition Management: Strategies for Effective Patient Handoffs, a 60-minute webinar on April 24th at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Joshua Brewster, director of care management at Regions Hospital, a HealthPartners hospital, and Cheryl Bailey, vice president of patient care services at Cullman Regional Medical Center, will share the key features of their care transition management programs.

  • The key factors that Regions has identified that place a patient onto its "hot list" for readmission risk;
  • HealthPartners' handover process for patients at-risk of readmission;
  • How HealthPartners meets the unique needs of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure and behavioral healthcare needs at risk of readmission;
  • The features of Cullman's "Good to Go" recorded instructions, from implementation guidelines to the program's expansion; and
  • How internal analysis of the recorded discharge instructions has helped Cullman further refine its discharge process and identify patients in need of post-discharge support.
