INTERACT – Project 2.b.v.i.i

Overview

INTERACT (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) is a quality improvement program that focuses on the management of acute changes in a resident’s condition in order to stabilize the patient and avoid transfer to an acute care facility. This includes providing the Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) with clinical and educational tools and strategies for use in every day practice in long-term care facilities.

Care Compass Network’s Goals

  • Reduce avoidable emergency department visits within the Medicaid/ dual eligible nursing home population by 25% by the year 2020.
  • To incentivize facilities to use various INTERACT tools.
  • Provide Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) with the tools, workforce, and IT support needed to provide the best quality care for their residents.

Who is Eligible to Participate in the Project?

Eligibility is open to any Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) within Care Compass Network’s nine-county region.
