Explore Efficient, Cost-Effective Strategies to Reduce Length of Stay, Improve Outcomes, and Increase Satisfaction for Patients Under Observation
Care providers from across the country collaborate for the 15th Annual Observation Management Summit to explore best practices in patient management and examine strategies to improve observation care, increase satisfaction, and achieve organizational goals. Throughout two days of interactive sessions and inspired dialogue, thought leaders - with and without physical observation units - share tactics to reduce length of stay, increase quality of care, and improve outcomes for patient under observation through efficient, cost-effective workflows. Explore how to navigate financial compliance complexities and standardize documentation for easy reimbursements. Discover how to measure patient and staff satisfaction through a series of workshops, case studies, and panel discussions with your peers to align priorities and maintain buy-in while complying with evolving regulations.
