NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VirtualHealth, the leading SaaS platform for care management and population health, announced today that its Vice President of Clinical Operations, Mirabelle Cabiling, will speak at the 2019 Medicaid Innovations Forum in Orlando, Fla. Cabiling will join a panel session, “Improving Care Transitions Between Settings to Reduce Avoidable Readmissions and Improve Outcomes,” that takes place February 6, 2019 at 9:20 a.m., and will explore best practices for eliminating the potential for adverse events when patients move from one care setting to another.
"Current estimates suggest that 80 percent of serious medical errors occur due to miscommunication during care transitions, resulting in avoidable patient events setbacks and higher healthcare costs,” Cabiling said. “Innovative technology like VirtualHealth empowers care teams with a whole-person view, providing the information needed to minimize oversights when patients transition between care settings.”
Cabiling will share insights on how care management technology empowers better transition management, specifically in supporting the exchange of comprehensive patient information and collaboration between institutions. Lack of integrated clinical, behavioral and social data often result in information gaps as patients move along the care continuum, increasing the risk of avoidable errors. Care management solutions like VirtualHealth overcome this challenge by curating all data streams into a single, complete whole-person view. This real-time data is then combined with intelligent responsive workflows to help care teams efficiently detect and bridge gaps in care as patients move across the continuum.
In addition to Cabiling, the panel session will feature Philip G. Stalboerger, vice president, public affairs with MTM, Inc., Elizabeth Langone, vice president of government programs with CipherHealth, Andy Bezaitis, chief growth officer of Texture Health and Monica Rivera, M.D., MPH, vice president of business development at Circulation.
“Stakeholders across the care continuum must be able to collaboratively share patient data,” said Adam Sabloff, founder and CEO of VirtualHealth. “We are excited to foster this vital conversation on how technology-enabled workflows can move the needle on enabling successful transitions of care.”
