Learn from the Experts: INTERACT for Assisted Living Intensive at Quality Summit

Lindsay Schwartz

Join us in Orlando for the 2nd Annual Quality Summit and attend the hands-on interactive intensive on INTERACT™ (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) for assisted living providers. Developer of INTERACT™, Dr. Joseph G. Ouslander, will lead the presentation team that includes Patrice Evans who was part of the team at Brookdale that implemented INTERACT™, and Lisa Thomson and Susan LaGrange with Pathway Health Services. The program will include an introduction to the INTERACT™ Quality Improvement Program, implementation steps, sustaining the program, incorporation of INTERACT™ into health information technology and leadership strategies for ongoing support and follow up. A presenter will share their experience implementing INTERACT™ in their organization including lessons learned and how to get front line staff involved. Attendees will have the opportunity to work through case studies to improve their understanding of how this program can help staff identify early acute changes of condition, manage in-house when possible and reduce unnecessary re-hospitalizations for quality and financial success.
