Transitions of care remain the most dangerous communication problem in healthcare. In fact, studies show 80 percent of serious medical errors involve miscommunication during hand-off between providers, and that the cost of poorly coordinated care transitions ranges from $12 to $44 million annually.
Knowing how to achieve improved transitions of care is often the greatest challenge for healthcare leaders – particularly when it comes to improving clinical communication and care coordination.
During this webinar, panelists will discuss:
- Why communication and care coordination often breaks down during intrahospital transfers, interhospital transfers, and discharges from hospital to home
- How Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Indiana improved transitions of care
- Strategies to successfully utilize technology to improve care transitions
