Agenda

Disclosure Statement

Don't miss this opportunity to improve the safety and quality of every patient's experience at your hospital.

Join us for this Summit dedicated to advancing safety and quality in our nation's Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals and Units (IRH/Us). This unique summit will bring together leaders in the medical rehabilitation field, as well as health care experts and policy makers, to exchange the information, insight and strategies needed to deliver the highest levels of safety and quality in our organizations.


SUMMIT TARGET AUDIENCE:

Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital/Unit Leaders, Risk Managers, Professionals in Healthcare Quality, and Medical, Clinical and Operations Leaders.

Continuing Education hours will be offered to physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, pending state approval. 


SUMMIT OBJECTIVES: 

  1. Improve the safety and quality of patient care in the Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab environments
  2. Identify and share best practices across the continuum of care and apply them to the Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab environments
  3. Review the current and future legislative/regulatory environment of Safety and Quality in healthcare
  4. Gain access to practical tools and resources that will improve Safety and Quality in your organization


AMONG THE TOPICS TO BE ADDRESSED:


Measurement, Analysis and Reporting Quality Indicators

Critical to quality assurance and improvement are accurate, consistent and transparent measurement, analysis and reporting of quality indicators - including outcomes, adverse events, care delivery systems, effectiveness and efficiency, and optimization to key audiences (stakeholders).


Risk Reduction and Risk Management

Patient safety and risk reduction require more than analysis and good intentions. Improvements are contingent upon processes that engage relevant stakeholders, allow for the integration of new and/or innovative strategies, drive long-term commitment and support cultural change.


Clinical Applications

The implementation and success of clinical quality and safety initiatives not only benefit patients, but contribute to best practices in medical rehabilitation, and can profoundly impact the nation’s delivery of health care.


Outpatient Rehabilitation: Safety and Quality across the Care Continuum
Recognizing the importance of the continuum of care, discussing safety and quality in the outpatient setting are important determinants of patient outcomes and the rehabilitation experience. Accurate documentation, measurement and reporting, and the implementation of best practices, both clinical and behavioral, can drive both patient care and organizational improvement.
