ME-P Reader Survey
As our physician readers are aware, beginning in 2013, CMS will penalize hospitals for excess readmission rates.
Initial focus will be on readmissions for heart failure, acute myocardial infarction and pneumonia — data that is already reported on the CMS Hospital Compare web site, as previously noted on this ME-P forum.
How to Reduce Hospital Re-Admissions
As private payers follow CMS’s reimbursement and reporting leads, healthcare organizations must take bold steps to reduce avoidable readmissions.
A Call to Action
And so, we invite our medical professional readers to report on their initiatives and tips in this area, and deliver actionable data in order to help hospitals and healthcare organizations reduce avoidable readmissions.
Please tell us and your colleagues, what you are doing and plan to do, in the changing future of healthcare.
