Right now, patients are awaiting discharge from your busy units.
Right now, your nursing staff, physicians and discharge planners are determining plans for your patients to follow when they leave the hospital.
Right now, patients are evaluating those plans and making decisions about what they will actually do in the real world – based on how easy those plans are to follow within the circumstances of their lives.
How do you know the patients’ life circumstances won’t cause them to return and need additional care? What if you had insights that would allow you to better help them – such as arranging for them to have reliable transportation to their follow-up appointments if they need it, or access to healthy food if they live in high crime neighborhoods?
Everyone now has stake in the game—the final Medicare ACO rule is looming…from CMS to NCQA—who will be the first to figure out the secret to managing patient populations, improving outcomes and making real strides to reduce readmissions?
During this webinar, it is discussed how social determinants of health alone are a powerful tool in care planning. Utilizing that data in analytics to identify an individual patient’s chances of readmission could be a game changer for provider organizations.
