Product Description

Follow These Strategies for Reducing the Rate of Re-Hospitalization

If you’re an owner, manager, registered nurse or therapist, then heads up — here is how to decrease the rate of re-hospitalization in your agency. These tips and examples of best practices will show you how to decrease the rate of re-hospitalizations.  

The financial incentives are great! Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s) will be looking for agencies with a good track record! We will discuss “Transitional Care Programs” and how to use these programs to your agency’s financial advantage.

Bottom line: These two areas of coverage are misunderstood by most and underutilized by almost every agency. Many clinicians have been indoctrinated in the “theory” that SM&E and Therapy Maintenance “are not covered” or “if we use it we will get medical reviews.” In fact, these are truly skills identified in the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual. Furthermore, these benefits are covered when documented properly.

This session will help you:

  • Follow these tips for reducing your re-hospitalization rate using one tool that you use several times a day
  • Learn how to document the use of best practices for keeping folks out of the hospital.
  • Highlight the top 5 reasons that patients are re-hospitalized and what you can do to prevent it!
  • Create a “Transitional Care Program” in your agency.
  • Shift your patient from DEPENDENCE to INDEPENDENCE in dealing with their chronic conditions.
