Interfacility transfers occur all the time. However, many transfers lack a sufficient framework for efficient coordination and communication between a sending facility, the transportation team, and the receiving facility. Studies have shown that this lack of an operational framework puts transferred patients at increased risks of prolonged hospital stays, mortality, and other adverse events compared to non-transfer patients.
So, that begs the question: Are there best practices that healthcare teams can follow to help reduce these increased risks for transfer patients?
On January 22, 2022, Motient will answer that question in its “Applying Best Practices to Interfacility Transfers” webinar. You can sign up to join us at 11 AM CST and learn the key factors related to successful transfers, along with the actions you can take to improve your facility’s transfer processes and data collection.
