Focus on Readmissions
August 23, 2017
10:00 to 11:00 a.m. CT

Kansas hospitals participating in the KHC Hospital Improvement Innovation Network will come together for a virtual meeting on August 23 at 10:00 a.m. CT.

Our special guest presenter will be a readmissions subject matter expert, Pat Teske, implementation officer, Cynosure Health.  We will discuss the HIIN Readmissions Challenge, which is now underway through September. We also will hear from Kansas hospitals about how they are implementing this short challenge and what insights they have gained so far from their patient interviews.  In addition, Pat will provide simple methods for analyzing your readmissions data, relate change ideas for targeted areas, and more!  Pat also will share helpful resources, such as the new Readmissions Trail Guide, which HRET released last week.  We also will discuss progress to date in achieving Milestone 5 and the HIIN’s 20/12 goals.
