National Summit: Transforming Hospital, Post Acute and Long-Term Care Delivery Systems for Health Care Reform

To succeed in the new health care delivery and payment systems, you must understand their potential impact on your organization. Join us for the National Summit: Transforming Hospital, Post Acute Care, and Long-Term Care Delivery Systems for Health Care Reform, March 31-April 1, 2011 at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Recognized experts and industry leaders will present practical strategies you need to create partnerships and programs essential for success in the future. 

  • Kathleen M. Griffin, PhD of Health Dimensions Group will reveal how health systems and hospitals are forming relationships with post acute and long-term care providers to coordinate and deliver care in both efficient and effective ways.
  • Guy Masters from The Camden Group will provide insight into how the new payment and delivery systems will work and lessons learned from the early adopters of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
  • Dr. Palmer Evans from the Tucson Medical Center, one of three CMS ACO pilots, will share how post acute and long-term care fit into an accountable care organization, as well as strategies used to create a seamless care continuum through collaboration.
  • You will also hear from the nation’s leader in care transitions, Dr. Eric Coleman from the University of Colorado Denver and the Director of the Care Transitions Program, as he describes Care Transitions Intervention SM (CTI), the standard throughout the nation for promoting high quality and effective management of care transitions.

 Additional topics include:

  • How new payment options will transform the health care delivery system
  • How to create data driven partnerships
  • How to measure and manage hospital readmissions from post acute venues
  • How post acute and long term care provider thought leaders created value-based relationships with hospitals, physicians, and payers

Knowledgeable providers that are equipped to respond quickly will be the winners in the new health care delivery and payment world. Join us to learn practical and proven strategies for collaborative partnerships, innovative models of care management across the continuum, and systems for integrative services to meet the chronic care needs of seniors.
