Geriatrics Service Lines Strategies
Webcast on CD or On-Demand
Presented on August 3, 2010
Sponsored by Service Lines Strategies Virtual Workshop 2010
As the aging population grows, healthcare organizations need to prepare for the financial stress this demographic will place on them.
Creating a senior-specific service line that coordinates services across the continuum of care improves patients’ access to services, lessens readmission, and decreases the financial impact on the hospital or healthcare system.
This 90-minute webcast, including Q&A, looks at strategies for development for your geriatric service line. Our expert speakers from two well-known geriatric programs discuss how to maximize opportunities through physician alignment, care coordination, and an interdisciplinary team approach.
