Optimal discharge planning prevents unnecessary readmissions and ensures hospitals comply with the CMS standards and receive reimbursements. This year, 2,573 hospitals forfeited $564 million from higher readmissions.
This program will cover the CMS proposed discharge planning process, which includes changes to the admission assessment, transfer form, discharge evaluation, and discharge instructions. Discharge Planning Worksheet, Project Re-Engineered Discharge (RED), and mandatory changes in the IMPACT Act will also be discussed. Our expert will recommend strategies for preventing readmissions, discuss CMS' Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, review CMS Blue Boxes on improving patient outcomes, and provide evidence-based tools and initiatives hospital employees can implement to prevent readmissions.
