Clinical Integration – March 21, 2016
In order to create care that is safe, effective, efficient and patient-focused, clinical integration is needed to ease the coordination of patient care across conditions, providers, settings, and time. By promoting changes in provider culture, redesigning payment methods and incentives, and modernizing federal laws, clinical integration is achievable.
On March 21, both national and local authorities representing acute care, long term care, behavioral, and end-of-life care discuss the impact, issues and implementation of patient care. Come learn how many healthcare networks are reorganizing into Clinically Integrated Networks to improve patient care, while reducing costs. Featuring Ken Yale, author of Clinical Integration: Population Health and Accountable Care, Jim Gaffney, MD, VP/CMO, Hosparus and moderated by Sean Muldoon, Sr. VP/CMO, Kindred Healthcare.
