Margaret Latrella, APN-C
Margie Latrella is vice president, clinical and network quality, for Real Time Medical Systems. She brings 30-plus years of working as an acute care registered nurse and cardiac advanced practice nurse in both hospital and physician practices to Real Time. Previously, she applied her clinical experience to her administrative role at St. Joseph’s Health, focusing on clinical programming, quality improvement interventions and reporting for value-based programs. Ms. Latrella has demonstrated success in total cost of care savings in two-sided risk agreements, including in the Medicare Shared Savings Program accountable care organization and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced programs, by developing the collaborative workflows and comprehensive care coordination necessary for success. She also has led technology implementation to monitor patients in skilled nursing facilities, which played a major role in reduced readmissions and decreased length of stay in post-acute care facilities. Both physiological and social determinants of health were considered to ensure programming results in high–quality outcomes across the continuum of care as patients transitioned from hospital to post-acute care settings, and as they managed chronic and complex disease processes at home.
