Lost in Translation: Bridging the Post-Acute Care Gap to Reduce Readmissions Webinar

Description

The Lost In Translation webinar is scheduled for June 21, 2017 at 9 - 10 am MT. 

Overview
The Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act helps assess the health status of individuals as they transition between acute and post-acute care settings. If these care settings are not “speaking the same language” by collecting and reporting on different health criteria, this can hurt quality measures and contribute to readmission penalties in both care settings. This presentation will address this issue and much more.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the highlights of the IMPACT Act legislation
  • Identify how these changes align with and influence hospital goals
  • Discuss how to integrate the post-acute care setting with hospital efforts
Target Audience

This webinar is intended for CNOs, nurses and quality directors and professionals.
