Allina Health-Redesigning Advanced Care and Rehabilitation

Held Sept. 19, 2018

Allina Health, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute (CKRI), provides rehabilitation services for people with short- and long-term conditions, injuries and disabilities. The Institute’s care coordination teams have demonstrated improved connection to appropriate services and reduced ED visits and rehospitalizations using innovative care models designed to leverage the electronic medical record to help guide, identify, and sequence care needs.  By focusing on six program populations: spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, cancer rehabilitation, spasticity management and specialty primary care they have developed population health care models that better support the individual/caregiver and improve outcomes.

And, due to a growing older adult population with limited access to community based resources, innovation in late life care is needed.  LifeCourse, an Allina Health program employs community health workers (CHWs) and successfully leverages alternative care models to increase access to support seriously ill individuals and families. Developed by Allina Health and built on the core tenets of palliative care, LifeCourse supports patients facing serious illness in the last few years of life.

In support of its Value Initiative, join your colleagues, Jill Henly, Manager of Care Management at Allina Health CKRI and Paige Bingham, Director, Allina Health LifeCourse on a webinar as they highlight their experiences in coordinating rehabilitation and redesigning advanced care models. 

Participants will:

  • Learn how to identify population health needs; how CKRI utilizes the medical record to identify gaps in care; and, how to engage individuals and their caregivers in services across the care continuum.
  • Hear about lessons learned and successful strategies for implementing alternative care models; and learn how to identify opportunities for organizations to increase access to palliative care and hospice.
