Transitions of Care Monthly Meeting

The new “Transitions of Care” meeting was started in July at the request of Candy Sawyer RN, BSN, Regional Manager-IP Case Management at Samaritan Hospitals. The meeting will follow our monthly Senior Service Network meeting in Albany each month (same room). Located in the Reimer Conference Room, across from the Albany hospital. The goal is to improve communication between case management and community providers, especially related to readmissions and start of care following a hospital visit. This is a meeting by invitation only (in an effort to remain focused on housing, home care and hospice). Please contact Amy if you feel your company was missed and should be included.

June 2 will be a virtual meeting, 10:45am,

Candy would love to discuss: 

  • Transportation agreements to and from facilities (all levels)
  • Samaritan LTCF COVID Process-How is it going?
  • Noted delays in communication to SNF’s due to morning stand up meetings, then later responses and frustrations with later transitions
  • How are the Home Health agencies and In Home Care feeling with the pressures of COVID? How can we help?
  • Updates… very spotty updates from providers. We need EVERYONE to update in real time, and not sure why this is not happening because it is FREE!
