Description

One in five patients discharged from a hospital experience an adverse event within 30 days, often leading to emergency department trips and readmissions. Research suggests that up to 76% of these readmissions could be preventable, saving hospitals $564 million in Medicare reimbursement.

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 Value-Based Purchasing Report, and provide evidence-based tools and initiatives hospital employees can implement to prevent readmissions.
