CHARLESTON, WV -

Dr. Barbara Michael, facility medical director for Saint Francis Hospital, is featured in Becker's Hospital Review's recent article, "Reducing Readmissions to Reduce Penalties: Where to Begin?" 

Michael has completed all phases of the Emergency Department/Hospital Medicine Integration Program, which integrates patient care from the Emergency Department through their inpatient stay. 

Results have found that core measures compliance is higher and patient satisfaction scores increase when there is communication and collaboration between the Emergency Department and Hospital Medicine. 

The Becker's article highlights Michael's best practices, including interdisciplinary rounds to help transitions of care.
