On October 2012, the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) started to flex its muscle, as Medicare began to recover payments from hospitals for unnecessary readmissions within 30 days of discharge. The initial focus has been on patients diagnosed with Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), pneumonia and Congestive Heart Failure (CHF); however; Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) and Sepsis is also on the radar.
The Avoidable Hospital Transfer Journey
Hospitals are actively seeking post-acute providers that can manage patients effectively, with:
- Programs and systems to ensure clinical competency and effective management of these key disease states
- Expertise to pick up on subtle clinical changes – before they become a crisis
- Processes to quickly and effectively intervene when there is a decline in status
Alignment with key partners and resources is imperative for the post-acute provider to be successful. Does your organization have a clear path to avoid unnecessary hospital transfers?
