Tips for Reducing Avoidable Readmissions in the Era of Value-Based Care
Having worked on reducing readmissions for a number of years, what has been the biggest change in the last five years or so?
The biggest change for me has been accountable care. We started our readmissions work back in 2008. Since then, as we’ve gotten into more ACO work, we don’t just focus on readmissions anymore. We now look at any hospitalization more closely. [Preventing avoidable] readmissions is still very important, but now we have to consider the bigger picture. We need to coordinate the care and provide for safe transitions between levels of care. Instead of just focusing on high-risk patients, we’re taking a broader view and looking at how we can best impact care for all patients.
