Preventable Readmissions Initiative: Hospital and SNF Collaborative Kick-off Webinar

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
On Tuesday, February 28 NYSPFP will host a Preventable Readmissions Kick-off webinar for hospitals and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) participating in the Preventable Readmissions Initiative, which focuses on care transitions. The webinar will provide an overview of the initiative, describe the collaborative approach, disseminate tools and resources, and share a calendar of upcoming events.

NYSPFP will be convening hospitals and SNFs with high readmission rates among shared patients to participate in a collaborative improvement effort to help providers reduce potentially avoidable transfers and readmissions between facilities. The NYSPFP readmissions initiative will address the need for collaboration among providers from all care settings to improve the delivery of care for their shared patients by developing standardized communication and care transitions processes. NYSPFP will support facilities in this collaborative by facilitating regional hospital and SNF team meetings, providing web-based education, and hosting in-person conferences.

The kickoff webinar will feature Sara Butterfield, RN, BSN, CPHQ, CCM, Senior Director of Healthcare Quality Improvement, IPRO; Donna DeGarmo Anderson, RN, MSN, CCRN, CENP, Senior Director of Care Management from Bassett Healthcare Network; Laurie Neander, RN, MS, President of the Bassett Healthcare Network: At Home Care, Inc., and Diane Judson, RN, BSHA, Regional Director of Network Integration for Wingate Healthcare. Staff will share their experiences and success stories with regards to lowering readmission rates and effective care transitions.
