Care transitions have become much more than moving a patient out of the hospital. Patients should receive care in the most appropriate setting and everyone involved in a patient’s care must engage with each other to manage cost, readmissions and patient satisfaction.
The MHA Health Foundation webinar Transitions in Care: A Key Role for Case Managers, Social Workers and Interdisciplinary Teams will review:
- Why transitional planning has developed into a process and is no longer considered an outcome
- The patient touch points through the continuum of care and decisions that impact patient transitions
- How to align processes with post-acute care and the most appropriate provider setting
