Through a growing number of community partnerships with skilled nursing facilities, the Care Coordination Network created by Summa Health System has been able to reduce hospital readmission rates and average length of stay for patients transferred to these SNFs...and has them well-positioned as they work toward development of an accountable care organization (ACO).

By identifying three key areas to improve care transitions between the hospital discharge and a SNF admission, Summa Health System developed a collaborative model of care for this next level of care among a network of privately owned, competing SNFs.

During the webinar, Carolyn Holder, manager of transitional care for Summa Health System and Michael Demagall, administrator, Bath Manor & Windsong Care Center, will share:

  • How to create a win-win for SNFs and hospitals to reduce readmission rates;
  • Three key areas that negatively impacted care transitions between Summa’s hospitals and SNFs in its community;
  • Strategies implemented by Summa to address the key hospital-to-SNF transition challenges;
  • How to develop a QI process that monitors transitions on an ongoing basis to identify weaknesses in the care transition process; and
  • How the partnership is being developed and enhanced as the hospital system works toward development of an ACO.
