Learn why now is the time to reach beyond the low-hanging fruit and begin to implement holistic programs and solutions that support whole care teams and proactive patient care. Working together, teams can fully engage in value-based contracts and help reduce readmissions.
High rate of readmissions is a significant burden for the U.S. healthcare system. Medicare spends $26B per year for readmissions and almost $17B for avoidable readmissions. In 2013, the average cost of all-cause readmission was $13,800 per readmitted Medicare beneficiary. Now in 2018, CMS penalty for readmissions under the HRRP is $564M in total for 2,591 hospitals (~80% of evaluated hospitals), a 6.7% increase over 2017.
Readmissions are costly and are also indicative of quality of care. They are a critical part of STAR, HEDIS, and ACO quality measures. Even though they are a significant challenge, change is possible. If health plans work together with providers, they have a better chance of addressing readmission issues than if either were working alone.
To succeed, health plans and providers must collaborate closely to address:
