“As we transition from volume based to value based care, health care providers and other stakeholders are struggling to identify key drivers to address the challenges around the redesign of health care delivery and payment reforms. What will be the role of integrated care management, ACO’s, and transitions of care models and how can we efficiently integrate all transactions of care across the care continuum?” – ABQAURP website course description
Their new course "Survive and Thrive in the Changing Health Care Environment” tackles that question and more with sessions covering: the relationship between hospital-based and community-based approaches to preventing readmissions, how value is rewarded through care redesign and improving transitions of care, identifying and managing health care cost drivers through a well-designed care management program, deciding if your coding, documentation, and payments are congruent, community-based programs successfully employed to manage care transitions, and what you need to be a sought-after provider by EVERY payer.
The “Transitions of Care and Reducing Readmissions Boot Camp” course was recorded during an intense one-day educational track.
“Nearly one in five Medicare patients is readmitted within a month, which the government considers a prime symptom of an overly expensive and uncoordinated system. It is clear that CMS, and intuitively other payers of health care, are aggressively looking at every opportunity to improve efficiencies and reduce waste in all transactions of care across the health care continuum. To provide participants an understanding of, and tools needed to work successfully with, the rules for Medicare’s Hospital Readmission Reduction Program, ABQAURP presents an intensive one day event to address this tumultuous time in health care.” – ABQAURP website course description
Content focuses on: Providing an overview and update of national strategies addressing transitions of care and reduction of readmissions, specific roles physicians and their extenders can play to reduce inappropriate readmissions, transitions of care opportunities to reduce readmissions in high risk patients, and initiatives that have been successfully employed to reduce readmissions in hospitals
