Littauer’s Geoffrey Peck presents at health symposium in NYC
GLOVERSVILLE — Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home announced that Littauer’s Vice President of Population Health and Executive Director of the Nathan Littauer Foundation, Geoffrey Peck, was a featured speaker at the Medicaid Accelerated eXchange Series Symposium. The event took place on Wednesday at Metropolitan West in New York City.
The goal of the symposium was to reduce 30-day readmissions, emergency department visits, and overall hospital utilization by successfully implementing multidisciplinary action plans. He shared best practices, and celebrate the success of Littauer’s initiatives to reduce readmissions.
“Our shared goal is to find methods to connect patients to the most appropriate and cost-effective services available to help them stay healthy and live better lives,” said Peck ahead of the conference. “We discovered that some patients need assistance navigating through the systems of health care and social programs.”
According to Peck, Littauer and a network of regional partners are successfully addressing these issues. “Partnerships with community-based organizations have made these care-management improvements possible. We have an incredible group of service agencies in Fulton County,” he continued.
The MAX Series program is supported by the New York State Department of Health.
