Integrating Acute and Post Acute Care – Moving Forward Together

September 28, 2023 @ 11:45 am to 3:00 pm

Integrating Acute & Post Acute Care – Moving Forward Together
September 28, 2023 11:30am-2:30pm
Ecumen – 4002 London Road, Duluth, MN 55804
1.5 Face-to-Face Education Credits

Management of populations of patients through integrated post acute care models can not be done by a simple referral. As our populations change, so must the delivery of healthcare services along the care continuum. Acute Care Hospitals are faced with ever more regulatory requirements and expanding financial penalties all in an effort to elevate the Standard of Care across the healthcare system on a national scale. These regulatory requirements and the corresponding financial penalties are not new phenomena. Most hospitals aggressively develop performance improvement plans that center on the resolution of these deficits for minimization of potential financial exposure.

We are now in a new wave of financial penalties to Acute Care Hospitals with the Medicare payment reductions for returns to acute within 30 days of discharge. These current reductions are unique in that they are driving focus for Acute Care Hospitals to work collaboratively with members of the post acute care continuum to cohesively manage patient populations through increasingly more aspects of a patient’s post acute care progression. Long Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Home Health Agencies (HH’s), and Continuing Care Retirement Facilities (CCRCs) will play an even greater role in supporting our Acute Care Hospitals in the management of patient populations through the continuum of care.

This event will be held in person at Ecumen in Duluth. This event is coordinated by the ACHE MN Northern Local Program Council and approved for 1.5 Face-to-Face education credits. Thank you to our event sponsors The College of St. Scholastica, Ecumen, and LeadingAge Minnesota.
