Care Continuum From ER to Post Acute: Making the Argument for Partnerships


Care Continuum From ER to Post Acute: Making the Argument for Partnerships

Case studies for developing successful care continuum strategies.

Healthcare systems of the future must explore how partnerships among organizations can lead to an integrated care continuum with coordinated, effective patient care that enhances existing revenue streams and supports new ones. This practical course focuses on how to develop a successful care continuum strategy that meets the needs of individual communities using best practice case studies and roundtable discussions. Participants will examine strategies to improve patient care that reprogram the ED and integrate acute and post-acute services, including coordination of behavioral health services and chronic care management.

You'll Learn:

  • How to identify new partnerships and revenue streams outside your organization
  • An organizationwide strategy for integrating patient levels of care and determining the role of each level of care
  • Practical approaches that improve care coordination from the ED to the acute and long-term care settings
  • Whether your organization is prepared to accept risk and integrate care
