Coming to Richmond and Roanoke in mid-November: Avoiding Rehospitalizations Program

VHCA is pleased to offer this in-depth program on key clinical and operational strategies to prepare your facility for its role in the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program.  The program will be held in Roanoke on November 14th and in Richmond on November 15th.  Participants will learn the critical steps for developing a plan to change the interdisciplinary team’s focus to prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions.  Reducing hospital readmissions has become the target for Medicare, hospitals and post-acute providers across the country.  As Medicare begins to recover payments from hospitals for unnecessary readmissions within 30 days of discharge, the focus will be on providers that can demonstrate programs and systems to effectively manage Pneumonia, Myocardial Infarction and Congestive Heart Failure.  Most importantly, long term care providers will be more accountable for the care they provide. This is a very important program for providers.  Special thanks to our program partner Gulf South Medical Supply  for its support.
