IHI Seminar on Reducing Readmissions

With readmission payment reductions set to take effect in 2012, providers across the care continuum are feeling financial pressure to keep patients from being needlessly readmitted. Therefore, the two-day seminar sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), "Reducing Avoidable Readmissions by Improving Transitions in Care," could not come at a better time.
Presenters will include:
  • Peg M. Bradke, RN, MA
  • Eric A. Coleman, MD, MPH
  • Gail A. Nielsen, BSHCA, FAHRA, RTR
  • Pat Rutherford, RN, MS
The event will be held in Washington, D.C. on November 16-17, 2010.  For more information, please click here.
