Impact of Vision on Health Care
Vision impairment contributes significantly to excess hospital
length of stay
 adds 2.4 days
 patients four times more likely to have rehabilitative care
prescribed on discharge
Visually impaired patients experience more problems after
discharge
Decline in vision status is associated with lower emotional,
physical and social functioning
Visually impaired patients are less satisfied with their
healthcare

Transitions: Best Practices
• Challenges:
 Obtaining D/C reports from hospitals
 Notification of a transition from members
• What works for us
▫ Audit of transition records
 Includes potential causes of unplanned transitions
such as readmission in less than 30 days
 Monitors adherence to protocol for medication
reconciliation and PCP visit within 2 weeks of D/C
 Provide feedback to Care Management team
• Transitions of Care Work Group
15
Key Ideas
Short Term Workgroup Formation
▫ Multi-departmental teams focused on implementing rapid cycle QI projects
▫ Focus on implementing interventions and disband
 Example: PCP Collaboration and Transitions of Care
Align required Quality Projects (CCIP, QIP, State) with MOC
Goals
▫ All activity targets improvement in important areas
Select two or three core ideas to drive all improvement
▫ GuildNet focused on:
 Increasing collaboration between the Plan and PCP
 Increasing the number of annual PCP wellness visits
 Streamlining Care Management Process for Transitions of Care
