CRHCexhibited a Storyboard about its Improving Communication and Readmission (iCARE) program at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) National Forum this month in Orlando, FL. The storyboard provides an overview of the program since its beginnings in 2010 and highlights the accomplishments of program participants in relation to the three overarching iCARE program goals:
- Improving communication in transitions of care
- Reducing readmission rates
- Improving clinical processes that contribute to readmissions, particularly for heart failure, pneumonia, and diabetes patients
Sixteen critical access hospitals and fourteen rural health clinics across the state are currently participating in the program. For more information about iCARE, contact CRHC’s CAH Program Manager, Caleb Siem, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To view the iCARE Storyboard, click here.
