On May 5, 2011, CMS is hosting a national forum on the ACA-mandated Community-Based Care Transitions Program (CCTP). The CCTP is designed to encourage the development of partnerships between hospitals with high readmission rates and community based organizations in order to: improve transitions of beneficiaries from the inpatient hospital setting to other care settings; improve quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries; reduce avoidable hospital readmissions for high risk beneficiaries; and document measureable savings to Medicare.
