A multiplicity of factors converging together suggest the LTPAC provider community (e.g. nursing homes, behavioral health facilities, home health agencies, etc.) will elevate in importance within the healthcare ecosystem during the next few years. The challenge for many LTPAC providers in this emerging environment will be to advance their clinical health IT capabilities in order to "play" with other providers in the healthcare "sandbox." This book is designed to assist LTPAC leaders in identifying and exploring the array of critical issues one needs to consider in order to operate within an advanced clinical health IT ecosystem.

This book surveys key issues surrounding the use of clinical health information technologies (health IT) in long term/post-acute care (LTPAC) settings. It also will provide the reader with a suggested strategic plan and roadmap to be a valued provider partner in care coordination in the new healthcare care and payment environment. It provides the reader with options in a strategic roadmap or plan to be a valued partner in the person centric spectrum of care.
