The High Cost of Hospital Readmissions

A hospital “readmission” is the return of a patient to a hospital within 30 days of being discharged from a hospital. Readmissions cost U.S. taxpayers and insurance companies billions of dollars each year. To combat this high cost, hospitals and other health systems are penalized for readmissions.

Proven Process

Step 1: Stratify Risk

Our in-house senior risk stratification expert will use our proprietary 144 point scoring system to assess each patient’s unique risk profile across 6 metrics. This process is repeated every 30 days at a minimum.

Step 2: Develop Care Plan

Leveraging clinical research and proprietary methodologies developed by our dedicated research partners, a dedicated nurse will develop a care plan customized to each patient based on that patient’s individual risk profile.

Step 3: Clinically Manage Care

A dedicated 3-member team will manage the care of each patient according to the care plan. Each team consists of a dedicated nurse, care coordinator and front-line care professional, all working together to improve outcomes.
