2023 Together - PH351 - Building Bridges: Better Transitions Lead to Improved Access and Fewer Readmissions- On Demand
This panel discussion will describe how two healthcare organizations established clinics to serve identified patient populations at risk. AtlantiCare Health System implemented a bridge clinic to support its enterprisewide initiative to eradicate overdose-related deaths within its community. As an interim intervention, an interdisciplinary team provides immediate healthcare access and stabilizes individuals on life-saving medications. SSM Health Saint Louis established a transitional care clinic to treat patients identified as most at risk of readmission. This multidisciplinary team approach resulted in fewer readmissions. Join this session to learn more about the successful efforts of this panel of experts.
