Without a care coordination solution, transitions prove difficult.
Each year, nearly 2.6 million seniors — or about one in five Medicare patients — are readmitted to a hospital within 30 days of a discharge. According to Medicare, this is an annual cost of $26 billion.
Mismanaged care transitions can impede patient engagement, and this can hurt overall health outcomes. As an organization, you could miss key value-based performance metrics that influence revenue and minimize cost.
