INTERACT (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) is a quality improvement program shown to reduce hospital readmissions by up to 24 percent1. The program is designed to target three key strategies to help you reduce potentially avoidable hospitalizations:
- Prevent conditions from becoming severe enough to require acute hospital care.
- Manage selected acute conditions in the nursing home.
- Improve advance care planning for residents for whom a palliative of comfort care plan is appropriate.
The INTERACT eCurriculum includes online training as well as guides, resources and tools that give you everything you need to start the process of safely reducing unnecessary hospital transfers, admissions and hospital readmissions.
