Transitions of Care Webinar Series




The problem

Transitions of care are problematic in healthcare delivery systems in the United States and internationally. Communication breakdowns, medication errors, lack of care coordination, poor patient understanding, lack of HIT interoperability and post-discharge planning and support at the point of discharge / care transition - these all contribute to poor outcomes and wasted resources. Well-established research has demonstrated how to reduce these preventable errors.


The standards of care embedded in Project RED have been proven to:

  • Reduce Readmissions

  • Improve patient outcomes

  • Raise patient / family engagement

  • Increase staff satisfaction

  • Save nurse time, and millions of $

Project RED principles are the best-in-class standards of practice in care transitions


Errors, oversite and poor practices not only result in hospital readmission penalties and wasted resources, patients, families and staff are demoralized and become cynical when the same problems recure without any remedy.


We understand the problems, now what can we do about them?

In this series of programs, you’ll learn:
  1. Thirteen principles of Project RED

  2. How to implement best-in-class transitions of care

  3. Proven patient engagement practices

  4. Practical insights on gaining stakeholder buy-in

  5. Care coordination practices that work

  6. Application of Project RED to a specific (problematic) chronic clinical condition

Takeaways
  • Proven methods to achieve the Triple Aim

  • Practical solutions to readmissions penalties

  • Translate research into action

Unnecessary and / or inappropriate hospital readmissions cost hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Hospitals which readmit patients outside of national standards are penalized and have lower patient satisfaction scores. While these consequences are significant, the additional costs to poorly managed transitions of care include patient and family stress and difficulty, and demoralized staff.


Join us for a series of three webinars designed to further the dialogue and offer concrete,

actionable directions for policy, operations and medical professionals.
