the power of collaboration reduce readmissions
The Power of Collaboration:Reduce Readmissions
  • The Process
  • Identified critical information needed to transition a patient to different levels of care.
  • Worked with state agencies to modify existing patient hand offs to ensure smoother transitions.
  • Explored standardized discharge orders and patient education.
  • FHA collaborated with:
    • Agency for Health Care Administration
    • Florida Association of Directors of Nursing
    • Florida Department of Elder Affairs
    • Florida Medical Directors Association
    • Florida Orthopedic Society

Florida was first state to use published “potentially preventable” readmission rates for all hospitals. For the first time, hospitals had meaningful data readily available.
