Webinar: Initiative to Reduce Avoidable Hospitalizations-Overview and How to Apply

When: Tuesday, April 3, 2012  |  2:00pm – 3:00pm ET


This initiative is possible through the collaboration of the CMS Innovation Center and the CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office.

The Initiative to Reduce Avoidable Hospitalizations among Nursing Facility Residents is a new initiative designed to improve care for people living in nursing facilities who are enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid.  

Through this initiative, CMS will partner with independent organizations to improve care for long-stay nursing facility residents. These organizations will collaborate with nursing facilities and States to provide coordinated, person-centered care with the goal of reducing avoidable hospital stays.

In this webinar, staff from the Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO) and the CMS Innovation Center will provide an overview of the initiative, and offer information about how to apply.
