Legislating health care policies and regulations is a difficult task that once in practice may have unintended consequences with long-term implications. The good news is that while issues concerning access and reimbursement continue, the underlying work to address population health, quality improvement, and patient safety is forging ahead.

This session was recorded live at our 2018 Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference and is a portion of the online course entitled: Navigating What’s Next with Population Health, Quality Improvement, and Patient Safety.

Health care policy change brings innovation, creativity, and opportunity for positive improvement. New care models require processes to promote evidence-based medicine, patient engagement, and care coordination. This course focuses on improving transitions and care coordination through improved communication and collaboration with the physician, patient, and the entire care team.

At the conclusion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify overlaps and gaps in transitions of care programs
  • Apply strategies to address gaps to avoid duplicate efforts and multiple hand-offs
  • Analyze support of individuals with long term service and support needs
