Key opportunity to learn from Dr. Joanne Lynn, who will lead the faculty for a new session from the Institute for Health Care Improvement, a seminar on building systems that work for frail elders. Program in Colorado later this month, and more details here:

So many articles come across our screen, and we often link via Twitter @medicaring. In the meantime, here’s a link to an important study:

First, a link to an article from Population Health (thanks to the Commonwealth Fund for the link). So much to understand about how to get communities to work together to improve care transitions and reduce readmissions. Our JAMA work (read more at www.altarum.org/qiopaper) offers insights on building coalitions. Learn more here about the STAAR project:

Readmission-Reduction-Policies-into-Results.aspx?omnicid=20

As ever, we like to hear from our readers, who often give insights, leads, and stories we would not otherwise find. Be sure to comment. And like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and share your own successes, challenges, and stories.
