The Transitional Care Institute recently hosted our first webinar of 2017, ‘High Value Care Transitions: Key Concepts in Optimizing Next Site of Care.’ In it, Chief Medical Officer Win Whitcomb and Clinical Director Susana Hall gave a comprehensive look at NSOC selection using case studies, performance data, and improvement strategies.
Supporting a patient’s recovery during an episode of care entails safe, high quality transitions from acute to post-acute care. As value-based payment models emerge, affordability must also be a key objective for hospital discharge. This webinar saw Win and Susana describing strategies that healthcare organizations can use to assess and promote a patient’s ability to recover at home when appropriate, or with an intervening stay in a facility if needed. They also discussed new roles for the hospital discharge team – physicians, case managers, therapists, nurses – in promoting high-value care transitions.
