Readmissions Management

In this fourth year of the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program 2,592 hospitals will be penalized for high 30-day readmission rates. Some hospitals will lose up to 3% with an average 0.61% loss. The total cost for hospitals is estimated to be $420 million dollars. Losing any revenue, especially after you have provided quality care and used precious resources, is frustrating to say the least.
