A special McKnight’s webinar will highlight important ways to provide quality care and teach attendees how to use their own data to improve hospital readmission rates. The hour-long event offers CE credit at no cost and will start at 1 p.m. ET on Aug. 28.

Value-based purchasing penalties and incentives for skilled nursing facilities begin October 1, so this webinar will be especially timely. The featured speaker will be Denise Wassenaar, RN, MS, LNHA, the chief clinical officer and vice president of clinical and regulatory affairs for Matrixcare. Joining her will be Rob Price, senior project manager at Matrixcare, and McKnight’s Editor, James M. Berklan, as moderator.

Attendees will learned the regulatory and legislative path to value-based payment; how to identify and incorporate data into QAPI processes to effectively manage hospital readmissions; and how to use analytics to manage readmissions and strategies for building a data-driven culture.
