Testimonials from Health Care Providers in the Readmissions Network

Valley Baptist Medical Center Brownsville and our sister hospital in Harlingen vary in size and cause for hospital readmissions; therefore, a system-wide look into the issues causing the readmissions was not feasible. TMF provided tailored assistance to help both hospitals determine our respective root causes, and helped us develop a process to track and monitor readmissions concurrently. TMF’s assistance has been a key component of our hospital’s success reducing readmissions.

Leslie Bingham, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Valley Baptist Medical Center – Brownsville

TMF was instrumental in our receiving funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement the Amistad Care Transitions PATH. They assisted in the planning and coordination of a community-wide Care Transitions kick-off conference, community coalition formation, intervention selection process, root cause analyses for downstream providers, social network analysis, formation of regional workgroup meetings, data analyses of 30-day readmission rates for hospitals and their downstream providers, along with quarterly readmission metrics and intervention performance strategies.
