  9. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • INTERACT stands for “Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers” • It is a program designed to improve the care of nursing home residents by: • Identifying situations that commonly result in transfers to the hospital – and working together to manage them effectively and safely in the nursing home without transfer whenever possible

  10. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • The goal of INTERACT is to improve care quality, not to prevent all hospital transfers • In fact, INTERACT can result in more rapid transfer of residents who need hospital care

  11. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • The INTERACT program was: • Originally developed in a project supported by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) • Revised based on input from staff from several nursing homes and national experts in a project supported by The Commonwealth Fund

  12. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • The INTERACT program includes clinical tools, strategies to implement them, and related educational resources • The INTERACT program is located on the internet at: http://interact2.net

  13. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • INTERACT includes 3 types of tools for you to use in your daily work in the nursing home: Communication Tools Care Paths Advance Care Planning Tools

  14. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • The INTERACTtools are designed to be: • As simple as possible • Efficient for use in daily care routines • Based on scientific evidence and/or expert recommended clinical guidelines where available • Consistent with federal regulations and guidance for surveyors

  16. The different INTERACT tools are meant to be used together in your daily work in the nursing home

  17. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum INTERACT – definition and goals • INTERACT can result in reduced hospital transfers by helping you to: • Prevent conditions from becoming severe enough to require hospitalization through early identification and assessment of changes in resident condition • Manage some conditions in the NH without transfer when this is feasible and safe • Improve advance care planning and the use of palliative care plans when appropriate as an alternative to hospitalization for some residents

  18. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum Why it matters – a national perspective (1) • Emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and re-hospitalizations of nursing home residents are: • Common : 1 in 4 residents admitted to a nursing home from a hospital are re-admitted to the hospital within 30 days • Expensive: hospitalizations that might not be necessary cost Medicare and Medicaid billions of dollars every year

  19. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum Why it matters – a national perspective (2) • Hospitalizations can contribute to many complications: • Distress and discomfort for the resident • Delirium • Polypharmacy • Falls • Incontinence and catheter use • Hospital acquired infections • Unintentional weight loss and poor nutrition • Immobility, de-conditioning, pressure ulcers

  20. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum

  21. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum Why it matters – a national perspective (3) • Reducing avoidable hospitalizations will help: • Allow limited Medicare and Medicaid funds to be used to improve care in our nursing homes rather than for unnecessary hospital stays • Preserve Medicare benefits for all of us

Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum Why it matters – to you and your facility (1) • INTERACT will help you and facility: • Improve quality of care for your residents • Benefit from tools to help your team work together more effectively • Take advantage of everyone’s contributions to resident care

  23. Overview of the INTERACT Program and Curriculum Why it matters – to you and your facility (2) • The current situation, which favors hospital transfers, is going to change • Medicare is planning changes in payment that will reward lower rates of avoidable hospitalizations • Surveyors will be examining how facilities assess and manage acute changes in status • You need to be prepared!
