Mastering the Concepts
Assure Patient Success
the Continuum
Saturday, April 28, 2018 
8:00 AM - 4:15 PM
Forefront Conference Center,
Waltham, MA
Assuring patient success across the continuum of care is a balancing act maximizing outcomes for the patient, payer and provider. Frequently as case managers, we are challenged with the complexity of the patient's needs, limitations of the healthcare delivery system and the personal ethical issues we encounter when providing evidenced based case management care and its impact on successful patient transition.
This conference will explore the positive impact that the collaboration of population health and evidenced based case management can have on successful transitions.  Concepts aimed at reducing readmissions will provide a foundation for improved success and durable outcomes.  Wrapping up the conference will be a discussion on how to address and overcome those situations which raise ethical dilemmas with evidenced based care and impact safe transitions.   Discussions will include reference to the CCMC Code of Professional Conduct and the CMSA Standards of Practice.
