Design and Build Your Own Post-Acute Care Coordination Program

June 28, 2018

This three-hour essential program within the conference focuses on how to put post-acute care coordination in place and make it work. We will show how to design and build a robust care coordination program to improve the health of post-acute hospital patients. The goal is then, at the logical time, to develop care coordination for the population of the hospital’s service area. Over 40 hospitals are now using this plan.

The discussion will focus on what actually works and how to work with your payors and providers, not against them. We will cover:

  • Staff Selection, Roles, and Responsibilities of the Care Coordination Team
  • Redeployment of People Rather than Recruitment: Assembling your care coordination team from within the hospital and never losing sight of your objectives
  • Appropriate Post-Acute Patient Selection: A novel and effective data-driven strategy for the care coordination team
  • Training and Working with Your Volunteer Health Coaches: Intergenerational impact in a “no discharge” environment
  • Engaging and Caring for Challenging Patients: Successful strategies that drive outcomes
  • Initial Investment: How not to break the bank, and with a focus on improving the bottom line, especially with Medicaid patients
  • Financial Effect: Risk-based contracts, ACOs, bundled payments, and capitation
  • Coordinating Care with Chronic Illness, the Most Important Target
  • Tracking Meaningful Outcomes and Fostering Positive Relationships with Payors
  • Enlisting and Working with Resources in the Community
