Welcome to thought leadership

The importance of an interdisciplinary team reaches beyond improved communication and reduction of silos -- IDTs allow for an holistic approach to care. Engaging with all levels of a patient’s care team ensures for the most complete care possible and empowers patients to maintain their highest level of function.

Expanding the care team’s collaboration beyond nursing, rehab and social services can yield positive patient outcomes. Consider these additional areas when building your IDT:

  • Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapy
  • Social Services
  • Activities
  • Dietary
  • Case Management
  • MDS Coordinator
  • Pharmacist
  • Administrator
  • Housekeeping and Maintenance
  • Business Office Manager and Receptionist
  • Admissions
  • Caregivers

Reduction of Readmission with Improved Care Transitions

The goal of coordinated care is to ensure patients receive the right care at the right time in the right setting, while working to avoid unnecessary duplication of medical services and prevent medical errors. This is not possible without collaboration between doctors, healthcare providers and hospitals across the care continuum. Reducing rehospitalization rates and improving outcomes requires teamwork for all patients, both short- and long-term.
