Reminder: Members-Only Webinar on Hospital Readmissions

This webinar is the latest installment in WHCA/WiCAL’s Financial Affairs Webinar Series.

Wisconsin hospitals have built on their successes in preventing avoidable readmissions by raising the effectiveness of post-acute care, such as decreasing length of stay, increasing functional improvement, improving discharges back to the community, and increasing customer satisfaction. Hospitals, Accountable Care Organizations, and Managed Care plans are all beginning to use these metrics to form post-acute care networks – and to help inform their referral decisions.

Hospitals are justifiably becoming increasingly prudent of where they direct patients along the transitions of care. So, SNFs and ALs need to know their performance in these areas if they want to build strong partnerships with other care providers as a part of transitions of care.

This webinar exclusively for WHCA/WiCAL members focuses on what long-term care facilities can do to better position themselves to be part of these post-acute care networks, including insight from the Wisconsin Hospitals Association, the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin, and Wipfli.
