Targeting Readmissions: A Collaborative Strategy for Hospitals, Health Plans and Local Communities

[Divider]

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 1 to 2 p.m. EDT

Even as hospitals work to reduce readmissions through internal quality improvement efforts, local healthcare communities must also play an active role in addressing factors outside the hospitals' control. The truth is that a significant percentage of hospital readmissions are associated with community-related factors such as unemployment, poverty, lack of education, and inadequate access to care.

During this webinar, experts from HMA will outline the rationale for a collaborative approach to reducing readmissions, involving hospitals, health plans, community-based organizations, and other providers who can address cultural and community-related factors that impact healthcare outcomes.
