Readmissions are a focus of every hospital. As CMS developed the readmission penalty there has been an intensified focus on process improvement for readmissions. The question often becomes, "Who really owns readmissions?" While case management may not own the complete process or be held completely responsible for the rates, the department and its staff are key members in the readmission strategy stakeholders. Regardless of the tool used to predict risk of readmission, each stakeholder is critical in reducing the rates of readmission in their individual hospital.
This presentation will focus on the financial impact of readmissions, whether it is for Medicare, bundled payments or commercial insurance. The financial impact is complex and often duplicates itself throughout the different penalty and value-based purchasing programs. This webinar will also cover each of the roles in the case management department and methods for collaboration with other stakeholders.
