Improve Patient Outcomes, Satisfaction, and Overall Hospital Performance in the Shift to Value-Based Care
The hospital benefits when lower acuity patients are managed in a more efficient and cost effective manner. Strategic observation management can reduce length of stay as well as improve hospital capacity for acute care patients that need beds. As the industry shifts from fee-for-service to value-based care, observation care, if done well, can dramatically improve patient outcomes, satisfaction, and the overall financial performance of the hospital at an opportune time.
The 17th Annual Observation Management Summit assembles leaders to examine strategies to adapt to the increase in volume, complexity, and severity of illnesses in patients. This Summit discusses best practices and challenges for both ED- and hospital-based observation teams and provides a roadmap to leverage the increases in complex patients and volume by expanding observation medicine.
