Qualidigm Extends Communities of Care Focus from Reducing Preventable Hospital Readmissions for Heart Failure Patients to Include ‘All Cause’ Readmissions
Qualidigm, the consulting and research company in Rocky Hill whose mission is advancing improvement in the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of health care, held its first “Care Transitions Leadership Academy.” Patricia Adams, Director of McLean Home Care & Hospice and Paul Cloonan, Assistant Director of Nursing for the McLean Health Center including the Post Acute Center participated in the first phase of four-day leadership forum along with 350 other statewide health care providers March 22 and 29. “The McLean clinical leaders are intensifying efforts across its care spectrum to enhance McLean’s ongoing efforts to reduce “all cause” hospital readmissions for the population we serve. McLean has exceptionally low re-hospitalization rates. The McLean clinical team is quickly incorporating new care transition partners, clinical tools, and data mining methods from the Academy to stay at the forefront,” reports Cloonan.
