|Tech-Enabled Innovations in Care Transitions|
|What do Uber, Amazon’s Alexa’s Marvee, Big Data analytics, automated patient monitoring, and old-fashioned house calls all have in common? Taken together, these technologies and approaches are changing the pre- and post-acute world of healthcare – for the better.
During this intense morning Workshop, ABL Members and their guests, will hear from healthcare leaders who are integrating technology into their care plans to keep discharged patients – especially those most likely to be re-hospitalized – safe at home. The results are better care for patients, and more rewards (and fewer penalties) for the hospitals, health plans, and providers at risk for their care.
Register for this lively session where you’ll be sure to hear bright ideas you can apply to improve your patients’ satisfaction levels and outcomes, all while reducing the total cost of care.

|Healthcare Breakthroughs on the Home Front
|With CMS’ increasing focus on not only reducing readmissions, but admissions as well, the HOME is increasingly becoming the “facility” of choice for patients with chronic illnesses – and even acute care needs. To bring us up to speed on some of the latest developments on the home front, three experts will present the impressive levels of care that are being deployed at the bedside – in the bedroom, rather than on “the floor” or even “in the office”- as technology advances and innovative approaches continue to bring care to patients, literally, where they live.As always, we’ll look to hear from you about the other home care examples you’re seeing and experiencing.
Jeannee Parker Martin, President and CEO of LeadingAge California is an internationally respected leader and “Home Health and Hospice Hall of Fame” Member. Jeannee will share with us the latest post-acute, home health, hospice, and palliative care trends that she’s seeing across the country with her 20 years’ experience at the helm of The Corridor Group, and now as the CEO of LeadingAge, which represents 400+ providers of senior living and care. We’ll also learn how Jeannee’s leveraged her international experience in care delivery gleaned throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia, to benefit patients at home in the U.S.
