Readmission Avoidance Program
Avery Telehealth guarantees clients a 30% reduction in readmissions with our telehealth services
The Problem Affects Everyone
The numbers don’t lie. Hospital readmission is a dilemma that affects the entire industry, creating unnecessary spending of healthcare dollars.
An astounding 75 percent of all hospital readmissions are preventable.
- The Centers for Medicine & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Reduction Program began penalizing in 2015 for excess readmission due to conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, chronic lung problems and elective hip or knee replacement.
- There are about 34,000,000 hospital discharges in the U.S. each year.
- 20 percent of discharged Medicare patients are readmitted in 30 days; 34 percent are readmitted within 90 days.
- 90 percent of readmissions within 30 days are unplanned due to clinical deterioration.
- 75 percent of all hospital readmissions are preventable
There are three primary reasons for readmission:
- Lack of discharge plan execution
- Lack of patient education
- Lack of post-discharge care coordination
