How Ascension Senior Living Creates Successful Post-Acute Care Partnerships

Available ON-DEMAND

Presented on:
Tuesday, May 10, 2016*

Presented by:
Jesse Jantzen, President and CEO of Ascension Senior Living

Historically, once patients have been admitted to rehab or skilled nursing facilities, the hospital from which they were transferred has taken an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to further care. This methodology resulted in many patients needing to return to the same hospital later on. 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.

Join Jesse Jantzen, President and CEO of Ascension Senior Living, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit senior living post-acute providers, as he discusses how these partnerships are built and sustained, what each side offers, and what metrics or benchmarks can be used to measure success.
