Description

Since July of this year, hospital readmission rates for Medicare patients with heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia have been posted to CMS' Hospital Compare (www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov).

The transparency of this information combined with the potential healthcare savings achievable through hospital readmission rate reductions has led most healthcare organizations to take a hard look at their readmission rates and implement programs to reduce these rates.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Mary Cooley.

During Reducing Avoidable Hospital Readmissions: A Case Study from Priority Health, a 45-minute webinar on November 18, 2009, now available as a CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a training DVD, Mary Cooley, manager of case and disease management at Priority Health, provided the inside details on the strategies that Priority Health is using to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions.

A 2009 analysis by Johns Hopkins University and Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) researchers found that Priority Health had significantly lower rates of unnecessary hospitalizations than traditional fee-for-service Medicare — 6.94 percent compared to the 18.6 percent readmission rate for traditional Medicare.

Researchers also found that preventable hospital admissions and ER visits were also lower among PriorityMedicareSM members when compared to the national average of traditional Medicare.

After reporting such robust results on hospital readmission rate reductions for its Medicare Advantage product line, Priority Health has rolled out the program this year across its entire book of business — and is reporting success across all populations.

During the webinar, Cooley shared how to:

  • Identify patients at risk of readmission;
  • Align reimbursement and payment incentives for readmission reduction programs;
  • Work with community partners to achieve hospital readmission reductions; and
  • Structure coordinated, patient-centered care delivery to reduce readmission rates.
