August 12 Nursing Home Webinar on Preventing Hospitalizations: Now Archived Online

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

As part of our CMP funded project for Medical Directors, Dr. Albert Riddle presented a most informative program outlining the top ten diagnoses responsible for resident hospitalizations and a process for assessing your facility’s performance, describing effective clinical systems for preventing unnecessary hospital readmissions, and describing the added-value of this quality improvement initiative in your current business activities such as Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP), managed care contracting, and compliance with CMS’ newly proposed nursing home conditions of participation.

The recording and slides for the August 12 Webinar on “Preventing Hospitalizations of Nursing Home Residents,” are now posted online. This link will bring you to HANYS website, but NYSHFA is the education coordinator for this project and education is available to all SNF.

NYSHFA recommends all nursing home leaders to access this archived program.
