Long-Term care providers should be more interested than ever in what goes on at a daylong, national summit next week dedicated to improving care coordination. The event takes place Sept. 14 at the National Press Club in Washington. Experts will lead participants through sessions that will cover Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), improving care for individuals certified under both Medicaid and Medicare, and much more. Experts at the point of care will discuss forward-thinking initiatives and innovative best practices. In less than four weeks, hospitals will begin getting penalized financially for rehospitalization rates that are too high, thus making relationships with long-term care providers more important than ever.
