Focused on improving care transitions? A bimonthly webinar series called “Shining Stars” gives you a chance to hear from others working on the ground to do just the same. Sponsored by The Colorado Foundation for Medical Care,  the next Integrating Care for Populations & Communities Learning Session Webinar will air on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 3:00 pm ET.

Participants have an opportunity to hear from local communities that have been successful in improving healthcare through reducing hospital readmissions. The webinars feature communities from different initiatives— those that are led by Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs), as well as those that are part of Aligning Forces For Quality, that have received state funding, Robert Woods Johnson awardees, CCTP awardees, Beacon communities, ACOs and more.

The sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month.  A full schedule is  posted at: http://www.cfmc.org/integratingcare/learning_sessions.htm
