Providing post-acute services is a significant challenge for both payers and risk-bearing providers. In the 90 days following discharge from an acute care hospital, older patients are 6 times more likely to be hospitalized, 11 times more costly, and 9 times more likely to die. Given this, why is it that providers struggle to improve outcomes for this high-risk population?
Health Data Analytics Institute, a predictive analytics company headquartered in Dedham Massachusetts, analyzed post-acute care outcomes from 7.6 million discharges from acute care hospitals in 2021. At this webinar we will share what we learned about:
• How the nation’s best ACOs perform on post-discharge mortality, readmissions and cost.
• How to predict and manage the discharged patients who are most likely to be readmitted and who are at greatest mortality risk
• How providers and payers can direct their patients and beneficiaries to the best Skilled Nursing Facilities (hint: using star ratings is not enough!)
