Cultivating a reliable patient transitions program
November 27, 2018
Patient safety is a high priority, yet reducing hospital readmissions continues to be a struggle for organizations. Via Christi Health, a part of Ascension and as Kansas’ largest provider of health services, successfully redesigned care delivery to patients during the hospital post-discharge transition—realizing a $1.6 Million cost avoidance, reducing readmissions by 93%, and identifying 3,200 patients needing additional follow-up post-discharge during their first year of creating transitional care clinics. This session guides you through their journey and how they identify their patients needing additional support that has led to success.
- Describe how care transition processes can be redesigned to reduce readmissions
- Identify how transitional care clinics can improve patient outcomes
