Nearly one in five Medicare patients is readmitted within a month, which is a prime symptom of a poorly coordinated system. What are you doing to address this?
It is clear that CMS and other payers are aggressively looking at every opportunity to improve efficiencies and reduce waste across the health care continuum. To provide participants with the tools needed to work with Medicare’s Hospital Readmission Reduction Program, ABQAURP is pleased to present the Transitions of Care and Reducing Readmissions Boot Camp, to help physicians, hospitals, accountable care organizations, and other providers address this critical issue. This program is scheduled for Friday, April 5, 2013 in Tampa, FL.

As we transition from volume to value based care, health care providers are struggling to address the key challenges around the redesign of health care delivery. What will be the role of integrated care management, ACO’s, and transitions of care models? How can we efficiently integrate care across the care continuum, and meet patient satisfaction objectives?
