MCOL’s Healthcare Web Summit announces Health Plan Readmission Strategies: Contracting and Care Management Approaches, scheduled for Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 at 1PM Eastern. Health plan readmissions management encompasses a variety of approaches that often incorporate new provider payment structures, data tracking, education and engagement. Some initiatives are designed for specific care delivery settings, while others are system-wide programs. Please join Drs. Joe Gifford and Robert Herr from Regence, and Dr. Brian Wolf from BCBSRI as they provide a Medical Director's perspective on aspects of their organization's current approaches to drive accountability by reducing unnecessary readmissions.
