Preventing unnecessary readmissions is a priority of all stakeholders in the health care system. One sector of the health care system can put in all the interventions possible, but without a partnership with other care providers, the chances of avoiding readmissions is limited. Improving care coordination and care transitions are the key to ensuring patients do not return to the hospital unless it is absolutely necessary. This Summit will bring together providers and partners from all parts of the health care system to discuss strategies and opportunities to improve care in Florida.


  • Increase understanding of key components of care coordination and care transition from the various stakeholder perspectives
  • Raise awareness of the role and importance of Advance Care Planning in delivering patient centered care and avoiding unnecessary readmissions
  • Learn about innovative strategies being used to improve care transitions and coordination


There is no charge for this meeting.  It is fully funded by the CMS Partnership for Patients, whose goal is to reduce patient harm by 20% and readmissions by 12% by the end of 2018
