In October, Harmony customers were lucky to have Dr. Eric Coleman as a featured keynote speaker at the Annual Users Conference.  Not surprisingly, his session was a big hit.

Care Transitions

Dr. Eric Coleman speaks to Harmony customers at the Annual Users Conference

Harmony is pleased to welcome Dr. Coleman back as our next featured webinar speaker.  On Monday, March 3rd, Dr. Coleman will offer his perspective on Care Transitions 2.0.  Specifically, he will provide his perspective on the challenges that aging services organizations commonly face when implementing care transitions programs, including collaborating with hospitals, managing costs, establishing effective business processes, and more.  He will also provide guidance for aging services organizations to overcome these challenges and optimize resources to increase the success rate of transitions for their consumers.

Leading aging services organizations across the country use Harmony to manage their care transitions programs including Maui County Office on Aging, Bay Aging, Michigan’s Area Agency on Aging 1-B, and the Capital Area Agency on Aging in Louisiana, among others.  Harmony for Care Transitions enables CBOs and hospitals to secure available Medicare program funds and to collaborate, create, plan, and deliver high-quality transitional care. With Harmony, CBOs are able to create transition care plans and manage and track transitions in coordination with hospitals. Organizations can easily report on processes and measure outcomes to monitor the success of transition programs.

The Community Care Transitions Program (CCTP) was launched in 2011 as part of the Affordable Care Act to improve transitions of Medicare beneficiaries from inpatient hospital setting to other care settings, reduce readmissions for high risk beneficiaries, and document measurable savings to the Medicare program.  Under this program, 102 community-based organizations (CBOs) will use care transition services to effectively manage Medicare patients’ transitions and improve their quality of care.
