Reducing Readmissions

A number of all hospitalizations are patients returning soon after their previous stay. Health care providers with high levels of preventable readmissions face penalties or the potential of losing a portion of their federal payments. Most readmissions derive from patients improperly taking their medications, injuries from falls, or mismanaging their chronic illness.

Readmissions are costly, potentially harmful, and often avoidable, but solutions from CreateAbility can provide the monitoring tools needed to ensure that both you as a health care provider, and your patient is taken care of.

Hospitals

Hospitals are penalized for readmission rates for conditions such as chronic lung disease, heart attacks, and hip and knee replacements. In addition to the high costs associated with preventable readmissions, these rates are sometimes used as an indicator of quality. Reducing how many patients return after discharge will not only improve patient outcomes but boost your bottom line.

CreateAbility’s solutions can monitor warning signs directly related to the conditions associated with The Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program. For example, an increase in a heart failure patient’s weight could indicate that their condition may worsen, but if properly taken care of, there may be no need for a readmission.

Independent or assisted living facilities

Patients between the ages of 75 and 84 account for the highest number of 30-day hospital readmissions. These hospital readmissions can be costly and put undue stress on the family members who have placed their loved one in your care. CreateAbility’s solutions can monitor factors that influence a client’s hospital readmission so they can be taken care of before they reach the point of readmission.

Professional home care

All of your hard work as a professional home care owner might be for nothing if your patient needs to be readmitted to the hospital for the same injuries over and over again. Many of the elements that lead to patients being readmitted to the hospital can be easily prevented or avoided with the proper tools in place. For example, 11% of hospital readmissions are directly related to medication non-adherence. This could easily be reduced with remote medication management. CreateAbility’s solutions streamline your home care and equip your staff with tools to reduce common readmission problems.
