Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
RightCare Solutions, Inc., an evidence-based technology company specializing in care transitions planning and readmission management, announced today that it will be presenting at the upcoming World Congress 3rd Annual Leadership Summit on Hospital Readmissions in Washington, DC, January 28-29, 2013. RightCare’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Eric Heil, will lead a panel discussion on Monday, January 28th, at 4:30PM.
In the session entitled “Leveraging Technology in the Fight Against Readmissions”, summit participants will hear the experiences and research data that have identified an unmet need for hospitals trying to reduce their readmissions, see how that challenge has led to evidence-based technology solutions, and learn a framework for assessing and adopting technology solutions to help fight readmissions.
Mr. Heil will be joined by three esteemed panelists:
Kathryn Bowles, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor, School of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania
Bill Hanson, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer, University of Pennsylvania Health System
Patrice Miller, MSN, MBA, Vice President, Clinical Resource Management, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
“This Summit on Hospital Readmissions is a great opportunity to hear how leading institutions like Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, the University of Pennsylvania Health System, and others incorporate innovative technology-enabling solutions that can benefit patients directly and reduce readmissions,” said Mr. Heil. “It is an honor to moderate this panel and I look forward to hearing more insights from our distinguished experts.”
As a pre-cursor to the summit, RightCare has prepared an infographic “US Hospital Readmissions Primer” that provides an in-depth background of trends in readmissions, which was recently published in the January 2013 issue of Readmissions News.
