The Readmissions Collaborative Learning Network began in July 2015, and provided education, structured networking, and guidance for participating hospitals. The curriculum was based on the new AHRQ Hospital Guide to Reducing Medicaid Readmissions, which is applicable to all payer populations and includes updated evidence and tools.
The Collaborative Learning Network included monthly webinars and attendance at a breakout session at the NC ACT Care Transitions Summit in February 2016. The interventions included assessing for risk of readmission and enhanced services for high risk patients, as well as enhanced collaboration with the cross-continuum team and improvement in communication, education and care for all patients, not just those at high risk.
Participating healthcare facilities, community providers, organizations, and the NC Quality Center, worked together in a one year collaborative learning network designed to improve transitions in care and reduce avoidable hospital readmissions. The collaborative learning network had the support and endorsement of the North Carolina Alliance for effective Care Transitions.
