Overview: Optimal value-based purchasing outcomes require effective care coordination and multidisciplinary teamwork. As case management departments have developed over the years, there has been a tendency for them to become siloed from other departments in the hospital. It is critical for a strong care coordination and team effort to be in place. Patient flow, optimal length of stay, increased costs, care coordination, discharge and transition planning, and minimal denials do not occur in a vacuum.
Healthcare reform, value-based reimbursement and the revenue and reimbursement cycles all require care coordination for optimal clinical and financial outcomes. This program will focus on strategies for effective care coordination. It will identify steps to be taken to improve collaboration with key stakeholders, both inside and outside the hospital. The role of teams, as well as the structure of each team, will be discussed.
