Transitional Care, One of the Most Important Quality and Business Case Opportunities in Healthcare for CAHs and PPS Hospitals

April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT

Rural residents across the country have access to fewer healthcare services, lower economic and insurance status, fewer physicians per capita, and higher chronic disease rates than their urban peers. More rural hospitals have closed recently than in the prior 15 years combined. Maintaining long-term viability of critical access hospitals will be essential for rural healthcare delivery. Furthermore, 20% of Medicare patients are hospitalized each year and almost half require care after being discharged from the hospital to assist them in their recovery from serious illness. Allevant, developed by Mayo Clinic and Select Medical, helps critical access hospitals thrive by establishing Transitional Post-Acute Care Programs. The Transitional Care Program is centered on teamwork, communication, and collaboration providing benefits to the CAH, PPS Hospitals, and most importantly patients in rural communities.

  1. Understand how critical access hospitals can lead the way in post-acute care.
  2. Recognize the key factors to positively impact culture, marketing, process reengineering, team and patient-centered care.
  3. Be able to communicate the value of the MENDS model in addressing healthcare burnout.
