iGetBetter Announces “Triple Aim Care Transition” Webinar Series
Focus on Post-Discharge Care Transition to Improve Outcomes and Reduce Readmissions
Waltham, Mass., May 7, 2014 – iGetBetter, Inc., a supplier of post-acute care transition solutions, announced today its seminar series “Triple Aim Care Transitions”, which will explore how improved post-acute care transition and active patient engagement in their own care plan can result in better patient outcomes, reduce unnecessary readmissions and help manage the overall cost of healthcare.
“There is a growing realization that improving the patient experience and increasing active patient engagement in their own care may be a strong predictive metric for better health outcomes and for reducing hospital readmissions, which ultimately impacts the efficacy of our health system. Our initial pilots with congestive heart failure (CHF) patients in local hospitals support that thesis,” said Dr. David Lebudzinski, chief medical officer at iGetBetter. “In this Webinar series we wish to explore how providers can improve post discharge care transition to help achieve the Triple Aim objectives of better patient experience and engagement, improved health and lower cost per patient.”
The inaugural Webinar of the series will be held at noon EDT on May 21, and is entitled “Can patient engagement in their own post-discharge care improve outcomes and reduce readmissions?” Subsequent Webinars in the series will be scheduled on a regular basis.
The iGetBetter team of clinicians, technologists and health organization experts is currently conducting pilots for congestive heart failure (CHF) and total knee replacement (TKA) patients in some Massachusetts hospitals. In addition, the company is actively seeking additional pilot opportunities for patients with conditions such as acute coronary syndrome (ACS), cardiac artery bypass graft (CABG), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), joint replacement and other high volume or high expenditure conditions.

Established in 2013 and headquartered in Waltham, MA., iGetBetter, Inc., develops, markets and services a Web-based care transition solution designed to help healthcare organizations reduce readmissions by engaging patients in their treatments and recovery as they transition from hospital to home.
