Further information


In this webinar you will learn how to integrate case management across the continuum in reducing your hospital’s cost and length of stay. You will learn how to coordinate the patient’s transition between healthcare systems and settings such as moving from the hospital to rehabilitation and home settings. Attendees will learn the ways in which to maintain open communication between the patient, patient’s family or caregiver and other members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team at all times regarding the transitional location.


While some hospitals are participating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as an accountable care organization (ACO), others are not yet participating. Even if your hospital or health system is currently not participating, many of the new CMS initiatives and payment changes still require that you think and behave like one. Bundled payments are one such example in which quality of care and costs must be managed across the continuum. Evidence shows us that case management can serve as the lynch pin that connects departments and disciplines across the continuum while retaining the patient as the center figure in the process. This program provides the attendee with concrete and implementable strategies for integrating and embedding case management across the continuum of care.

There will be a discussion on how to apply strategies for involving the patient and family in decisions regarding care and transitional options. Since many factors impact on the integration of case management among and between providers these will be covered in detail including the role of the patient/family, physicians and other providers of care, case management and post-acute providers.

Finally we will review best practice strategies for ensuring that patients do not fall between the many cracks and gaps in today’s healthcare systems.
