WHA Member Forum: Using Video Monitoring to Reduce Readmissions, August 22
On August 22 at 10:00 a.m., plan to participate in the WHA Member Forum, Using Video Monitoring to Reduce Readmissions. This webinar will focus on the use of video-monitoring devices in long-term care and patient home settings to reduce avoidable emergency room visits and inpatient stays.
During the webinar, Lois Van Abel, Bellin Health’s Director of Care Coordination, will describe how Bellin Health Partners, a CMS Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO), uses video monitoring in long-term care settings and at the patient’s home to prevent high-cost care utilization for certain patients suffering from chronic conditions. The ACO tracks the feed from the monitoring devices in real time, and if an intervention is needed, an on-call advanced practice clinician can do a video or home visit with the patient. Lois will share available data about the ACO’s strategic use of telehealth, as well as any lessons learned.
This webinar has been designed for telemedicine program managers, chief operating officers, chief nursing officers, chief medical officers, emergency room directors, chief information officers, discharge planners, and compliance officers. WHA members are encouraged to pass registration information for this webinar along to other appropriate persons in their organizations.
