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. The primary objective of this program was to use INTERACT principles to lower the number of patients transferred to the emergency department or to an Inpatient facility.

Care Compass Network also worked with area Skilled Nursing Facilities to implement an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and connect them to a Health Information Exchange (HIE) in an effort to increase the bi-directionally share of information.
