Virtual event to feature stories from Henry Ford Health System, Health Alliance Plan of Michigan and more
BOSTON, MASS. – JULY 13, 2020 – CarePort Health, a market leader in care transitions software, today announced the first virtual installment of its Care Coordination Summit series, titled “COVID-19 in Detroit.” The event, to be held on Wednesday, July 22 at 11:00 a.m. ET, will highlight how payers, hospitals and post-acute providers in Metro Detroit worked together to successfully coordinate cross-continuum patient care during the COVID-19 surge.
From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan hospitals faced a massive surge in COVID-19 patient admissions. As patients’ conditions improved, hospitals needed to identify post-acute care facilities that had the appropriate resources to properly care for COVID-19-positive patients that no longer needed acute care. The “COVID-19 in Detroit” summit, which is free to join, will feature real stories about how Henry Ford Health System, Health Alliance Plan of Michigan and Advantage Living Centers worked together using CarePort’s platform to efficiently deliver cross-continuum care.
“Hospitals, post-acute providers and payers are facing new pressures – often amid resource constraints – due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Lissy Hu, M.D. and CarePort CEO. “Our partners in Metro Detroit provide an exemplary model of how industry stakeholders can band together via improved care coordination to efficiently navigate new challenges and deliver better cross-continuum care for patients. Our virtual summit series is designed to illuminate critical market challenges and ways to overcome them. Our hope is that this series will offer providers and payers valuable lessons learned and new ideas that can be used for those throughout the country struggling with the backlash of an outbreak.”
