AMDCP Credit Designation:
This session has been approved for a total of management 3.5 credit hours toward certification as a Certified Medical Director in Long Term Care (CMD).
This session will review the facilitators and barriers encountered in reducing unnecessary hospitalizations learned from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Enhanced Care and Coordination Provider (ECCP) Projects. Four of the seven national project medical directors will discuss how their experience in implementing their projects strategies (including staff education, utilization of tools and systems, physician engagement, early change in condition identification, and technology) can be utilized by the practicing medical director and attending physician to improve the quality and transitions of care of residents. Medical directors and practitioners working with facilities to develop and implement the new Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) requirements should find “practical pearls” to use in their own practice.
