Integrating case management across the continuum requires the removal of silos separating acute care and community-based case management. These gaps in case management services are directly related to the schism in ways hospitals are reimbursed. To bridge the gap, hospitals are looking for reimbursement programs like bundled payments, accountable care models, and community-based programs.
The shift to reimbursement landscape means case management departments must now provide an infrastructure for well-managed patient care, which includes on-going care provided by the community to support discharged patients. This requires case managers to develop hard-wired processes that provide a structure for managing high-risk patients and effective handoff communication.
This program will provide attendees with concrete and implementable strategies for integrating and embedding case management across the continuum of care. It will cover strategies for effective handoff and enhanced communication to ensure that high-risk patients remain in the community as long as possible. Our experts will also review how case management services are linked in structure and process across the continuum perspective.
