Reducing Readmissions: Collateral Effects

By Claire Thayer, March 13, 2012

MCOL’s Healthcare Web Summit announces Reducing Readmissions: Collateral Effects, scheduled for Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 1PM Eastern and co-sponsored by Payers & Providers.  Changes to the Medicare program will financially penalize hospitals whose patients are readmitted within 30 days of their discharge. The readmission penalty affects other providers as well, including physicians and hospitalists in particular. Join Warren Hosseinion, M.D., the chief executive officer of the hospitalist firm Apollo Medical Holdings and Daniel C. Cusator, M.D., vice president of The Camden Group, as they discuss upcoming changes in the finance of hospital readmissions, and how the effects will ripple far and wide.
