Discharge planning has become more than just the movement of the patient out of the hospital. It is a “process” that starts at the point of admission and follows beyond discharge and through the continuum of care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have proposed more “teeth” to the process, with proposed updates to the discharge planning section of the Conditions of Participation. This program will review the most recent reimbursement challenges from the Medicare program as well as strategies for safely transitioning your patients across the continuum of care. Effective transitional plans can improve your hospital’s value based reimbursement. In addition, we will review how to engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including verbal and written hand-off communication. Transitional planning is no longer a destination but a process! Learn how to be certain that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment.
