The 2012 Clinical Impact Symposium, Care Transitions Across the Continuum, is officially under way! Over the next two and a half days, we expect to hear the latest evidence-based information from some of the top experts in the nation on topics including new resources for improving patient transitions between facilities and to the home.

We’ll hear from the inventors of new initiatives to improve care transitions and they will share success stories and challenges from several markets across the country, from Las Vegas to Massachusetts. We’ll learn about interactive and new technology tools designed to make the process easier and more effective, with the goal of providing better quality care while reducing cost and rehospitalizations.

Speakers and participants at the symposium represent all four of Kindred’s divisions, including the Hospital Division, the Nursing Center Division, RehabCare and PeopleFirst Homecare and Hospice. In addition, several guest speakers from outside the Kindred organization will address the group of 400 attendees.

One of the most dangerous times for patients is during times of transition, said Jeffrey Winter, Executive Vice President and President of Kindred Healthcare’s Hospital Division, as he welcomed symposium participants. The next few days will be devoted to learning more about how we can achieve better outcomes by facilitating more effective and efficient transitions and integrating care.

Stay tuned to The Kindred Continuum for more detailed information about the symposium.
