Health Care Reform and Its Impact on Transition of Care



Thursday, February 14
2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT)
Duration, 1 hour

This session will look at the impact that value based care, bundled payments and pay for performance models have on an organization's value, risk and patient safety. Specifically, it will explore risks related to hospitals' acquisitions of rehabilitation, long term care and/or home health/hospice companies, including the risk of re-admissions due to systemic care transition failures. Risk managers and patient safety officers can build value for organizations by using specific strategies for ensuring successful transitions in care and promoting quality and safety throughout the care continuum.

  • Explore how changes in health care payment models impact patient safety and value
  • Discuss the common patient safety failures in the transition of care
  • Identify and address risks associated with higher acuity patients in residential and out patient care settings
