Best Practices in Readmission Prevention
According to the National Transitions of Care Coalition, “ineffective transitions between levels of care results in poor patient outcomes and avoidable hospital admission rates.”
The reasons for readmissions are often not necessarily related to a disease process or condition but to determinants like poverty, isolation, low health literacy, language barriers, and lack of transportation, to name a few.
CMS’ Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) has impacted facilities experiencing 30-day readmissions for specific conditions. Eighty-three percent of the 3,080 hospitals evaluated from 2019-2020 received a penalty. The list of preventative interventions has continued to grow, and it’s not just hospitals that are focusing on readmission prevention. Outpatient providers and payers are also working to prevent readmissions.
Join industry thought leaders on this roundtable discussion as they focus on the efforts of hospital, outpatient, and payer programs.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to apply the following objectives:
- The participant will engage in discussion with the panelists on the most common readmission risks.
- The participant will be presented with specific readmission strategies from each health care setting.
- The participant will take away best practices in readmission prevention.
