L.A. Care’s website has a new “Hospital Readmissions Reduction” webinar as part of the national Project BOOST collaborative to improve hospital discharges and care transitions while reducing readmissions. Results from seven L.A. Care contracted hospitals are presented, including successful reports from Harbor UCLA. Hospitals with high heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia readmission rates face steep Medicare penalties beginning October 1. More webinars on this topic will be forthcoming.
