WHA Member Forum:

Using Video Monitoring to Reduce Readmissions

August 07, 2018

On August 22, plan to attend the WHA Member Forum, “My Care, My Home: Using Video Monitoring to Reduce Readmissions.” This complimentary webinar will focus on the use of video-monitoring devices in long-term care and patient home settings to reduce avoidable emergency room visits and inpatient stays.

During the webinar, Lois Van Abel, Bellin Health’s Director of Care Coordination, will describe how Bellin Health Partners, a CMS Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO), uses video monitoring in long-term care settings and at the patient’s home to prevent highcost care utilization for certain patients suffering from chronic conditions. Van Abel will also share available data about the ACO’s strategic use of telehealth, as well as any lessons learned.

This webinar has been designed for telemedicine program managers, chief operating officers, chief nursing officers, chief medical officers, emergency room directors, chief information officers, discharge planners, and compliance officers. WHA members are encouraged to pass registration information for this webinar along to other appropriate persons in their organizations.
