Webinar: Community-based Care Transitions Reducing Hospital Readmissions

When: Tuesday, March 27, 2012  |  3:00pm – 4:30pm EDT


The CCTP is an initiative of the Partnership for Patients, a nationwide public-private partnership that aims to cut preventable errors in hospitals by 40 percent and reduce preventable hospital readmissions by 20 percent over a three-year period. CCTP’s goals are to reduce hospital readmissions, test sustainable funding streams for care transition services, maintain or improve quality of care, and document measureable savings to the Medicare program.

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced 23 additional participants for the Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP). These participants will join seven other community-based organizations already working with local hospitals and other health care and social service providers to support high-risk Medicare patients in maintaining the healing process as they transition from hospital stays to home, a nursing home, or other care setting.

This webinar will allow stakeholders to hear directly from some of the newly selected sites. CMS Innovation Center staff will provide additional information about the program and will be available to answer questions.
