This session lays a foundation for the importance of care coordination in today’s healthcare environment with special consideration of the driver’s propelling hospitals to engage with LTPAC organizations in this effort. This month’s conversation, a must for those in acute care organizations involved in the development of care coordination efforts, includes insights on ONC’s envisioned relationship between LTPAC and acute care providers, as well as an exploration of one acute care organization’s experience in engaging with LTPAC providers in coordinating patient care post-discharge.
