Reduce Re-hospitalization Rates

Reimbursement cuts are coming to the worst performing hospitals in October of this year – and they’re turning to post-acute partners to help get readmissions under control.  Post-acute providers that fail to help hospitals address readmissions will see census dwindle.

Results from CMS pilot programs suggest that 20% to 50% of hospital readmissions are preventable with coordinated care around discharge. This paper will help you:

 

  • Survey your playing field. Using simple math, you’ll measure the status quo and calculate a skilled-nursing readmission rate that uses the same formula that AHCA uses as a baseline for nation-wide comparisons. You’ll learn where to find the rates of SNFs by region and nationwide, for free.
  • Shore-up your defense. You’ll get three tools you can immediately adopt to address and continuously improve your outcomes, including re-hospitalizations.
  • Play offense. You’ll get a sample pitch to promote your rates and outcomes to hospitals, drive referrals, and protect your top line.

The Bottom Line

It is critical to understand where you stand against re-hospitalization performance measurements and to strengthen your relationships with your key feeder hospitals. The revenues and reputations of both organizations will increasingly depend on joint programs to eliminate friction across the continuum of care, backed by data-driven facts.
