SummaryEmerging 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 System™, we not only know where your patients are going, we help you make sure your patients take the right path.
