The process of ensuring timely and smooth transitions of patients has been magnified during COVID-19. The pandemic has highlighted coordination challenges across the continuum, requiring hospitals and post-acute care providers to communicate and collaborate more than ever before on evolving issues to ensure the safety of patients and staff. Challenges include unique patient needs, patient acceptance criteria, personal protective equipment, infection control, and patient and staff testing. This webinar will feature a discussion among Massachusetts acute and post-acute care providers regarding their strategies for managing through a pandemic and lessons learned, and for managing future surges.
