In our recently completed survey on managing care transitions across sites, nearly 80 percent of responding healthcare organizations said the hospital discharge is the care transition getting the most attention. This week’s Healthcare Business Weekly Update features a podcast from Sara Gray, senior manager of emergency services at Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Colorado, who suggests two simple tasks to complete at discharge to keep recently discharged patients from returning to the hospital via the ER.

During the webinar, Sara shares Kaiser’s three-pronged approach to reducing avoidable ER visits.
