Speaker:Toni Cesta, Consultant and Owner, Case Management Concepts LLC
This program will review the current rules and regulations related to discharge planning, the most recent changes from the Medicare program and how they will impact the roles of the RN case manager and the social worker.
We will review strategies for safely transitioning your patients across the continuum of care. In addition we will review how to engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including verbal and written hand-off communication. We will also discuss the positive impact that effective discharge planning processes can have on hospitals, post-acute providers and patients.
Learn how to be sure that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment and that your role as a case manager or social worker is designed and staffed to meet the changes ahead.
