Marin chosen for Medicare hospital program
North Bay Business Journal

A partnership between Marin County public health and two of the county’s hospitals is among 30 similar programs nationwide — and the first in all of California — that will be recognized as a “Community-based Care Transitions Program,” an initiative stemming from health care reform that aims to curb costly hospital readmission among Medicare patients.

Advanced Care Transitions, or ACT, is a new partnership between Marin County’s Division on Aging and Adult Services and Marin General and Novato Community hospitals.
