Was there no mention of how this project is being funded, or if there are going to be any awards/penalties depending upon the outcomes? I was speaking with the CMO of a large Boston area hospital. He said that everyone knows that in the near future pay will be tied to lowering re-admissions. But since TODAY we are still paid by services, the hospital will not put any effort or money into project or tools to improve handoff communications.
