treatment of chronic care is often fragmented, discontinuous, inefficient,
expensive, and fraught with difficulties in accessing appropriate care.
A case can be made that chronic disease management could be considered
the new geriatric medicine: treating older adults with multiple diseases
that are associated with functional limitations, and involving complex,
psychological and social problems.
A paradigm shift in geriatric care is occurring, revolving around chronic disease management, with home and community based services and care coordination that focuses on quality, efficiency, patient satisfaction and cost. Significant opportunity exists to address reduction of geriatric hospital readmissions with this approach.
For 35 years, SCAN Health Plan has been focusing exclusively on the unique needs of seniors and others on Medicare. SCAN has developed innovative initiatives creating effective processes to reduce readmissions in the high risk, geriatric population, including their care transition interventions, INTERACT, and Guided Care Nurse programs. This session will explore demographic changes, readmissions reduction challenges, work force and caregiver issues and successful intervention approaches.
Please join SCAN's Vice President and Medical Director, Dan Osterweil, MD, FACP, CMD, on Thursday, August 27th, 2015 at 2PM Eastern, as he addresses SCAN Health Plan Initiatives to Reduce Readmissions involving Changing Paradigms in Geriatric Care.
