WEBINAR: Teaching Healthcare Teams to Coordinate Transitional Care Across Multiple Care Settings
Presented by NTOCC Partners Council Member, CaseNetwork

October 22, 11a CDT
Register - Complimentary

Speaker: Jeffrey Levy, M.D.

This webinar will discuss and demonstrate a unique collaborative program, CareCases, being developed in Partnership by CaseNetwork and NTOCC. CareCases addresses specific challenges faced by healthcare professionals dealing with difficult Transitions of Care situations. The goal of the program is to improve knowledge, foster better cooperation between caregivers and improve patient care.  NTOCC’s “7 Essentials Intervention Categories” forms the foundation for the educational series.

Objectives

  • Discuss the challenges faced by healthcare teams dealing with Transitional Care
  • Describe NTOCC’s Seven Essential Intervention Categories
  • Appraise a new case-based electronic education program teaching team-based transitional care
  • Review the CareCases curriculum

 


WEBINAR: Long-Term Care: A Crucial Piece of the Readmissions Puzzle
Presented by NTOCC Advisors Council Member, AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine
November 5, 11a CST 
Register - $35

The Long-Term Care Continuum (LTC) is actively utilized to permit earlier discharges from the acute care setting. The consequence is a transition of patients who enter this environment "quicker and sicker," thus, more fragile and susceptible to hospital returns, which encompasses emergency department visits without hospital admission, hospital re-admissions and observation stays. Prior to the institution of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), such returns to the acute environment were considered an acceptable consequence of the increased patient acuity entering LTC. Penalties now accompany excessive returns. This presentation will address some key portions of the ACA driving current behavior to diminish readmissions. Additionally, actions which the LTC facility can embrace to reduce hospital returns will be discussed.
 
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Determine the frequency of readmissions to the hospital for Medicare patients generally & in the LTC continuum.
  2. Understand current programs to reduce 30 day readmissions to the hospital.
  3. Be aware of provisions of the Accountable Care Act (ACA) created to reduce 30-day hospital readmissions.
  4. Objective 4:Learn techniques which can reduce 30-day hospital readmissions from the nursing facility.

WEBINAR: Care Transitions for the Most Vulnerable: One Patient’s Experience
Presented by NTOCC Partners Council Member, Curaspan Health Group
December 10, 11a CST
Register - Complimentary

Speakers: Eric Chetwynd, Cheri Bankston

The post-acute care community is often overlooked in improving care transitions, but is a critical component for the most costly and vulnerable patients in the U.S. healthcare population.  Follow a patient from the hospital through several different care settings to gain a holistic view of how technology, combined with strong clinical workflows can improve patient outcomes. Using the NTOCC seven essential intervention categories as a model and technology to support them, we’ll demonstrate how providers can move a patient between care settings efficiently. The results: shorter length of stay, improved patient satisfaction, reduced readmissions, and strengthened collaboration between post-acute providers and hospitals. 

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand how care transitions impact the most vulnerable patients

2. See how the seven essential intervention categories of care transitions can be applied to improve transitions

3. Take away practical advice for how technology impacts hospitals, providers and patients as they transition between care settings

4. Learn how clinicians are adapting their workflows to improve transitions and outcomes
