Patient Engagement and Provider Collaborations Across the Healthcare Continuum to Improve Care Transitions

Hospital admissions and readmissions among Medicare beneficiaries declined nearly twice as much in communities where Quality Improvement Organizations coordinated interventions that engaged the whole community to improve care than in comparison communities, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The JAMA study shows how state-based QIOs, under the direction of national coordinator, the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care (CFMC), coordinated community-based efforts with hospitals and other medical and social service providers to improve care transitions and reduce readmissions.

The first step for any healthcare organization and community-based healthcare providers is to conduct a root cause analysis of readmission data, which can vary from community to community, says Alicia Goroski, MPH, senior project director for care transitions for CFMC.

During Patient Engagement and Provider Collaborations Across the Healthcare Continuum to Improve Care Transitions, a May 22nd, 2013 webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Goroski will share the lessons learned from the 14 communities that participated in the CMS care transition demonstration project and details on how the program is being rolled out in 400 communities and to over 12 million Medicare beneficiaries across the country.

You will learn:

  • Key findings in effective care transition management from the pilot programs;
  • How hospitals are working with hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, hospice organizations, dialysis facilities and outpatient physicians to close care gaps;
  • Patient and provider engagement strategies to improve transitions of care;
  • Inside details from the pilot program in northwest Denver, which saw special cause variation in the reduction of both readmissions and admissions; and
  • A look ahead to the strategies being implemented by the roll-out programs.
