Clinical Integration:  Effectively Teaming Across the Continuum,” the third and final of the three-part webinar series TeleTracking is offering with The Joint Commission, will be held on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 11 am (ET).

Clinical integration is the “building block” toward population health management.  As people, we move through our lives and life stages.  Clinically integrated care, ideally, would follow at our sides to assist us in achieving health as we move through our lives no matter where we are and as we need different types of help and care.

Clinical integration requires coordination of patient centric care management across sites/settings of care, with physician providers aligned with the health system for effective quality and efficient cost in care for people throughout their lives.  It is based upon effective interpersonal teaming with nurses, physicians, pharmacists and therapists, all of whom, are providing information which is documented in a common and accessible clinical record.

Through expert discussion and real examples of how health systems and providers are managing toward clinical integration, join Ann Scott Blouin, RN, PhD, FACHE, Executive Vice President of Customer Relations at The Joint Commission, Peggy L Naas, Orthopedic Surgeon, Physician Consultant, MBA, and moderator Nanne Finis, RN, MS, Vice President, Consulting Services at TeleTracking Technologies for this live, 60-minute webinar where they will provide information on the approaches which health systems and providers have embarked upon to enhance integration, the momentum caused by the Affordable Care Act and resources to start this journey.

  • To describe what clinical integration is and its importance in today’s environment
  • To identify the key elements of clinical integration
