Reducing readmissions is essential to your hospital’s bottom line—and it is high on CMS’ radar. The 2015 IPPS final rule raised the maximum Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program penalty from 2% to 3%, underscoring the need for hospitals to focus on successful patient transitions or face a reduction in payments. Learn how to help patients reach their highest level of wellness throughout the continuum while keeping your hospital on track by hearing the story of a health system that sought to reduce readmissions by 15%.
Expert speakers Karen Zander, RN, MS, CMAC, FAAN, and Chris Nesheim, RN, MS, CMAC, explain the current state of readmissions, demonstrate new methods and models for reducing readmissions, and illustrate how you can modify risk tools to your organization's needs. They will guide you through the process of cultivating an integrated, interdisciplinary care management team composed of knowledgeable healthcare professionals and external transitional programs that can lead to safe, smooth, and sustained patient care.
