As communicated in this article from last month’s issue of Network Matters, Harvard Pilgrim medical directors, the medical leaders of participating hospitals and provider organizations, and other local industry leaders discussed the importance of decreasing avoidable emergency department visits and hospital readmissions at the most recent Massachusetts Medical Directors’ Meeting.
Harvard Pilgrim is continuing that discussion by hosting a follow-up WebEx that will offer the opportunity for our providers to share ideas about avoiding hospital readmissions and address common challenges, possible solutions, and best practices. Speakers from Emerson Hospital and Atrius Health will also present what they have done to improve readmission rates in their populations.
The WebEx will take place on Thursday, June 14 at noon (EST). If you’re interested in participating in the WebEx, send an email containing your first and last name to Ellen Foley at Ellen_Foley@harvardpilgrim.org and you will receive an invite via Event Registration.
