Part 1: Discharge Planning from SNF to Home Health

Effective discharge planning can help ensure improved patient outcomes and lower rehospitalization rates.

Effective communication between skilled nursing facilities (SNF) and the home health agencies can help providers better manage episodes of care and enhance referral relationships.
