SEA GIRT, NJ USA -- READMISSIONS UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- APRIL 27, 2017: A tri-county, skilled nursing facility (SNF) collaborative in Michigan is holding the line on hospital readmission rates for the three competitive health systems participating in the program.
Henry Ford Health System, Detroit Medical Center and St. John's Providence, along with the state's Quality Improvement Organization (QIO), MPRO, developed standardized quality reporting metrics for 130 SNFs in its market. The SNFs, in turn, enter the quality metrics into a data portal created by MPRO.
During Reducing SNF Readmissions: Quality Reporting Metrics Drive Improvements, a 45-minute webinar on May 11th at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Susan Craft, director, care coordination, family caregiver program, Office of Clinical Quality & Safety at Henry Ford Health System, will share the key details behind this collaborative, the impact the program has had on her organization's readmission rates along with the inside details on new readmission reduction target areas born from the program's data analysis.
