There are less than three weeks left until WHA’s second annual Post-Acute Care Conference, “Challenges in Post-Acute Care: Discharging Complex Hospital Patients
.” This one-day conference will be held Friday, September 6, 2019, at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. The program will address the challenges hospitals face in finding appropriate, accessible post-acute care for complex patients waiting to be discharged.
Keynote speakers will be Dr. Josh Luke, founder of the National Readmission Prevention Collaborative and health policy professor at the University of Southern California; and Judy Baskins, retired Chief of Clinical Integration and Ambulatory Services for Palmetto Health in Columbia, South Carolina and adjunct professor with the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.
The conference will also include state experts who will address issues including complex patient review committees, tracking excess patient days, expediting guardianship, how nursing homes care for complex patients, and other important topics.
