Care CoordinationCare Coordination: Closing the Gaps Along the Continuum 

Coordinating care requires information—knowing which patients to focus resources on, which subsequent care steps are appropriate for each patient, the availability and capabilities of the next care provider, and whether the patient has adhered to provider instruction.

Integrating Behavioral HealthIntegrating Behavioral Health: Decreasing Costs and Improving Care 

Behavioral health issues can markedly increase healthcare costs, and with one in four Americans experiencing a mental health issue, finding ways to address patients’ mental health needs is a very real issue. Integrating behavioral healthcare into primary care is a proven means to decreasing costs and improving care, but the prevalence of mental health problems among patients paired with restricted access to behavioral health providers make integration seem daunting. Carolinas HealthCare System has tackled this issue and developed a strategy to optimize resources leading to a truly integrated and financially sustainable model. 

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the growing need to integrate behavioral health into primary care 
  • Explore the benefits of a virtual model vs. co-location model 
  • Recognize the challenges to integration of behavioral healthcare into primary care models, including the patient-centered medical home 
  • Identify tools and measurements for evaluating the effectiveness of an integrated behavioral health program 
  • Articulate business reasons for integrating behavioral health into primary care

Successful Post-Acute Care PartnershipsHow Ascension Senior Living Creates Successful Post-Acute Care Partnerships 
With the introduction of 30-day readmission criteria, acute care providers can no longer function as a silo - they must form partnerships with post-acute care providers to improve quality of care across the care continuum. These partnerships can promote better communication, patient hand-off, and outcomes. 

In this 60 minute HealthLeaders Media live webcast, Mr. Jantzen will share his experiences at Ascension Senior Living including:

  • The importance of post-acute care and acute care integration 
  • Outcomes from the development of post-acute care and acute care relationships
  • Managing the cost of care across the continuum
