NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Irving Levin Associates, Inc. will host an important webcast on Thursday, April 17, 2014, at 1:00 PM ET to address transitional care. This webcast, part of the Senior Living Business Interactive Webcast Series, is sponsored by Regions Bank. Transitional care—the level of care between the acute-care hospital and the patient’s discharge destination—is under fire in some quarters. Poor communication and coordination between and among professionals, patients, and caregivers can lead to serious situations, waste resources, and frustrate everyone involved. Plus, some hospitals are treating elderly patients on an “observational” or “outpatient” basis in transitional care units (TCUs) rather than admitting them.
Lindsay Punzenberger, Vice President at Venn Strategies LLC will moderate the webcast, which will address topical issues such as: What are the concerns about TCU stays vs. full hospital admissions? How does that status affect Medicare’s skilled nursing facility benefit? What’s the readmission risk? What are the barriers to improved transitions? And what are the solutions?
Our hand-selected panel of experts will discuss all of these issues and more and answer any pressing questions that the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Kenneth Boockvar, Associate Director, James J Peters VA Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center; James Lett II, MD, Geriatrician/Long-Term Care Physician; Patrice Miller, Vice President, Clinical Resource Management, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Inc.; and Matthew Tanzer, Chief Commercial Officer, RightCare Solutions.
