Why Should You Attend:

Discharge planning has become more than just the movement of the patient out of the hospital. It is a “process” that starts at the point of admission and/or preadmission and transitions beyond discharge. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently added more “teeth” to the process in their proposed rules. This webinar will discuss the foundation of best-practice discharge planning for the RN Case Manager and Social Work Case Manager in the hospital. Additionally, the proposed changes to the Conditions of Participation: Discharge Planning by CMS will be reviewed.

Handoff planning, a newer term, describes the transition of your acute care patients to post-acute care providers. Included will be best-practice strategies for safely transitioning your patients across the continuum of care, as well as supportive case management roles for discharge planning outcomes. Lastly engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including internal and external care providers. Transitional planning is no longer a destination but a process! Learn how to ensure that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment.
