Preventing avoidable hospital readmissions is not only a hospital quality issue, it’s a financial one. Despite process improvement in discharge strategies, results are still lagging across the country. Tactical capacity is the missing element to a team’s ability to work under difficult, challenging conditions and to translate strategies into tactical actions decisively, rapidly and effectively. Through tactical capacity, you will bridge the gap between strategy and execution.
- Identify the system touch points as root causes for readmission in your organization and develop means to mitigate and eliminate them.
- Discover the five elements of tactical capacity and how they drive consistent strategy execution and improved performance.
- Apply the four fundamental behavior styles necessary to improve communication and team collaboration as a means to executing strategy effectively based on behavior expectations for performance.
- Identify the key elements of disruptive behavior that lead to medical errors and avoidable readmissions.
- Discuss the imperatives for reducing readmissions—patient safety, quality care, risk management, financial impact and service satisfaction.
- Review case studies and current research to discover what you must do to replicate successful strategies in your own organization.
