Rethink Podcast #15: Sue Craft of Henry Ford Health System

The 15th episode of our podcast, Rethink, is now available!

It’s never been a more important time for skilled nursing facilities to get to know their hospital partners, especially as SNFs face penalties for patient readmissions and a constant battle to maintain census and provide the best quality of care. That makes open lines of communication and strong relationships essential for acute and post-acute care — and Sue Craft, the vice president of inpatient case management and post-acute care services at Henry Ford Health System, is at the forefront of that work.

She oversees the Detroit-based hospital system’s preferred SNF network, as well as the team that makes decisions about patient discharges. Skilled Nursing News sat down with her to discuss the financial pressure that hospitals are facing, and how Henry Ford has changed its approach to post-acute partnerships over the years.

Listen to this episode to learn:
– Why Henry Ford focused on developing a preferred network to combat readmission struggles
– The metrics SNFs should bring to hospitals in partnership discussions
– What hospitals want from their post-acute partners
