Transitioning from inpatient to outpatient CDI

Today’s guest is Hailey Ryfinski, RN, the director of outpatient CDI at Mayo Clinic Health System throughout the Midwest. Today’s show is part of the “Leadership with Linnea” series. In every episode of this series, ACDIS Associate Editorial Director Linnea Archibald is joined by one guest from the ACDIS Leadership Council ranks or a contributor from one of our ACDIS publications to discuss a topic relevant to leaders in the industry, whether or not they currently hold a traditional management title.

Our intro and outro music for the ACDIS Podcast is “medianoche” by Dee Yan-Kay and our ad music is “Take Me Higher” by Jahzzar, both obtained from the Free Music Archive.
