With value-based care, the continuum of care is important, particularly in moving patients from one care setting to the next most appropriate setting, with essential care providers, care plans and technology in place. Setbacks in patient conditions, which necessitate expensive follow-up care and treatment, can be avoided, improving outcomes, patient experiences and reducing expenses.
Among the topics to be discussed:
· How to identify and eliminate discontinuity among caregivers during transitions to new care settings
· How to optimize care team workflows to eliminate potential problems
· How to become more aware of telltale warning signals from patients
· What technology and analytics can facilitate communication of essential information and preventive actions throughout the patient encounter
