Featured Webinar Replay:

Embedding Case Managers in a Primary Care Practice

Excerpt from presentation by Robert Fortini, vice president and chief clinical officer at Bon Secours Health System:

"The RN embedded nurse navigator's responsibility is to do telephonic outreach to the patients on that registry within 24-48 hours of discharge. They are to do medication reconciliation and education; they are to do red flag rehearsal; in other words, make sure that the patient understands signs and symptoms of worsening condition."
