Transitions Leadership Group Maps Patient Moves through St. Vincent’s Network Continuum

Colleen SwedbergAs groundwork for participation in CMS’s Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative, St. Vincent’s Health Partners (SVHP) formed a cross-functional cross-boundary Transitions Leadership Group to map what happens to patients moving along their care journeys, explains Colleen Swedberg, MSN, RN, CNL, director for care coordination and integration.
