Do You Know Where Your Patients Are Going?

| Jun 15, 2013

Emerging payment models will demand that hospitals establish tight and narrow networks of high performing post-acute care (PAC) providers.

An Avalere analysis found that of nearly 42,000 Medicare patients coded as being discharged from one hospital and sent to another in 2010, 32,000 never actually showed up. Instead, 21,000 went home and the remainder went to a number of different care settings.

You know better than anyone that emerging payment models for hospitals and health systems like readmissions penalties, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and bundled payments tie financial and clinical responsibility to care that is delivered in settings after discharge. Through the Avalere Vantage Care Positioning Systemâ„¢, we not only know where your patients are going, we help you make sure your patients take the right path.

Avalere enables you to take the first step in a partnership strategy by mining local market data to track where your patients actually go and to help you identify the most appropriate PAC partner. For more information, please contact Anne Tumlinson.
