Care transitions are a priority for all healthcare stakeholders. In recent years, much work has been done to develop processes, incentives, disincentives, and metrics to improve transitions and prevent readmissions. Much has been published about transition management, and organizations are very focused on the process, so why are hospital readmissions still a concern?
Approaching a transition as part of a continuum of care rather than a focused episode is a strategy that has resulted in reduced readmissions. Engaging case/care management with the care transition team will demonstrate improved outcomes and quality of life in many cases. This presentation will demonstrate the value of case/care management when included as part of care transitions, especially for those with multiple chronic conditions.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
- Analyze the causes of readmission regardless of transition process
- Comprehend the integral role of case/care management support of a transition process
- Discover the value and return on investment of case/care manager-supported transitions
