High readmission rates and the enormous cost of chronic disease management call for new and innovative solutions that go beyond traditional healthcare approaches
19% Readmission Rate
The national 30-day hospital readmission rate for Medicare patients remains high, at nearly 19% (CMS)
76% of these Readmissions are Potentially Preventable
That equals $12 billion in inefficient health care spending (MedPAC)
75% of Cost by only 35% of Patients
Approximately one-third of Medicare beneficiaries have 4 or more chronic conditions, and account for nearly 75% of Medicare spending (CMS)
We support patient care beyond hospital walls through care transition services, patient monitoring, coordination with other healthcare providers, and ongoing risk analysis – enabling better care for patients, better outcomes, and lower costs.
