Addressing care coordination to reduce hospital readmissions and costs

A recent study found that 20 percent of Medicare patients discharged from the hospital will be readmitted within 30 days due to a lack of transparency around care transitions. Read how Saint Francis Healthcare Partners (SFHCP), an Accountable Care Organization affiliated with the largest Catholic hospital system in New England, utilized PatientPing in a Post-Acute Care Transitions Pilot Program to reduce 30-day readmission rates and average length of stay. The pilot program was implemented at one high-volume, preferred skilled nursing facility. PatientPing’s real-time information enabled SFHCP to maximize efficiencies and increase productivity. With the expansion of its program and the adoption of PatientPing technology, SFHCP has reduced re-hospitalization rate within the preferred SNFs by more than 30% and reduced ALOS within the preferred SNFs by 27%.
