What stands in the way of post-acute interoperability? Find out how to get accurate patient data in real time

Thursday, August 20th, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a lot of inefficiencies within healthcare — one of the largest being the ability to share and access patient information between hospitals and post-acute care settings.

One of the riskiest times for misinformation to occur is when a patient is discharged from the hospital and placed into another care setting, such as a skilled nursing facility (SNF). This is especially true for patients age 60 or older who are at higher risk for infections, present more complex health needs, and have proven to be at higher risk of rehospitalization.

Medicare spends nearly $26 billion annually on hospital readmissions, $17 billion of which was spent on avoidable readmissions. According to a report from KLAS Research, 66% of post-acute providers still share and access patient data with referring hospitals via fax machines.

To mitigate risk with post-acute providers it is essential for hospitals and health systems to obtain real-time data, at the right time, in the right place, on the right patient.

During this webinar we will discuss how to access real-time data from your post-acute partners to drive clinical and operational workflow, deliver quality care, and reduce hospital readmissions.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Drive clinical performance and reduce readmissions with post-acute data transparency.
  • Discuss proven strategies to manage patient flow and post-acute bed availability.
  • Risk stratify patients to deploy the right resources to the right level of care.
  • Mitigate risk by identifying early signs and symptoms of infection with your post-acute partners.
