Title: Reducing Hospital Readmissions for Clients with Addictions
Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 2:00pm-3:30pm EDT
Speaker: Christopher Wilkins, CEO, Loyola Recovery Foundation, Inc.
Reducing hospital readmissions is top priority across stakeholders, requiring creative interventions to change the treatment journey for individuals with addictions. Loyola Recovery Foundation, Inc. in Pittsford, New York is a community based non-profit organization providing sub-specialty behavioral health, health management, housing, and employment services to Veterans. Hear first-hand from the Loyola Recovery Foundation CEO and learn more about the innovative program they implemented — the mPOWER Project.
Currently funded by SAMHSA, mPower provides mobile patient opportunities for wellness, empowerment, and recovery to an identified cohort of high risk/high need veterans between the ages of 18-55, who have a diagnosis of substance abuse along with multiple physical and psychiatric comorbidities. The specific goal of this project is to reduce the target population’s utilization of addiction crisis, emergency medical, and emergency psychiatric services through the use of technology-based interventions. To date, this project has resulted in a 192% decrease in readmission rates, from an average of 3.9 readmissions to an average of 0.3.
During this webinar, Christopher Wilkins, CEO of the Loyola Recovery Foundation will:
- Review the treatment challenges in implementing a program like mPower
- Discuss integrated re-hospitalization prevention strategies
- Discuss what has worked, what hasn’t, and next step
