TN healthcare partnership to reduce hospital readmissions

The Daily News Journal, July 19, 2012

TriStar Health and National HealthCare Corporation have announced an alliance aimed to provide patients across Middle Tennessee with a higher level of care as they transition from hospitals to recovery. The organizations will work together to devise new practices and protocols not only to streamline the discharge process but also to help post-acute facilities, like skilled nursing facilities and home healthcare workers more effectively manage and treat conditions. Both organizations will develop integrated intervention strategies that will span the transition of patients' care from acute to post-acute care and vice versa.
