Today's webinar Reviewed some highlights taken from the October 2, 2015 Learning Session and what practices identified as the most helpful and challenging processes in improving care transitions and reducing avoidable readmissions work.  We Drilled down into work flow using our expert’s recommendations and practice stories

Join QC's Executive Director Lisa Letourneau for a discussion with Jim Hester, co-architect of a promising and exciting new financial model for population health that uses "integrator organizations" to roll out a balanced portfolio of short-, mid- and long-term interventions.

In Maine, only 45.8% of girls and 17.6% of boys between the ages of 13 and 17 received all three doses of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, according to the 2013 National Immunization Survey for Teens. These percentages fall far short of the Healthy People 2020 goal of 80% HPV vaccine coverage for boys and girls. Join this webinar to learn what you can do to help increase the rate of HPV vaccination


Reducing Readmissions: 5 Strategies to Effectively Collaborate Across the Continuum

•Understand specific issues contributing to re-admissions for varying patient populations, including Medicaid and Medicare
•Highlight key learnings and best practices to leverage the assets of the primary care team and community- based teams
•Identify aligned opportunities for primary care practices, hospitals, Community Care Teams, and Behavioral Health Homes to reduce readmissions and improve care transitions

Reducing Readmissions: A Focused Quality Improvement Project for Patient Centered Medical Home & Health Home Practices


In this month's Behavioral Health Learning Collaborative monthly webinar Julie Shackley, RN, MSN, President and CEO of Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice shared highlights from their Hospital to Home pilot with CMMC (Central Maine Medical Center), including some pilot results, readmission rates and needs identified during hospital to home visits. Dr. Tom Sneed, Medical Director from Tri-County Mental Health Services also joined in to highlight how his behavioral health team is looking to partner with Androscoggin Home Health (a local Community Care Team-CCT) to support their clients needs. This information will also help Behavioral Health Home Organizations identify strategies to support their clients in appropriately use of the Emergency Room.


Listen to this webinar to learn:

  • The role primary care plays in population health
  • How strengthening clinical-community links promotes coordinated care, improves patient access to care, and promotes healthy behavior
  • How to build capacity for evidence-based intervention programs in the community
  • How to use data to support population health management and drive decision-making in health care systems and community partner organizations

  • Identify circumstances when it may be appropriate to provide patients experiencing severe pain with opioid therapy.
  • Recognize the risks associated with both short-term and extended-release opioid pills, the need to follow “safety first” precautions from the outset and to monitor closely the patient’s response.
  • Identify specific expectations that will be discussed with the patient and spelled out in the formal patient agreement with the practice, along with consequences for non-compliance.
  • Summarize ways to determine which patients are the primary candidates to be weaned from opioids.
  • Tabulate dosages of various opioids into morphine equivalents for comparison purposes.
  • Determine the elements of the tapering plan for each chosen patient and how to script the conversation that needs to occur with individual patients. 
  • Use a tapering tool to plan the appropriate steps in the patient’s withdrawal over a given period of time.
