Data from the Kaiser Family Foundation
As readmission rates stagnate or even rise and opportunities to improve patient satisfaction are superseded by competing priorities, hospitals are burdened with rising readmission penalties under the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), and are falling further and further behind in preparing for other looming value-based reimbursement requirements.
Address the Underlying Causes of Readmission
Guideway Care offers a proven, technology-enabled care guidance program that integrates with your current care team and unifies patient data from across the system, allowing you to quickly and efficiently extend individualized, disease-specific support to patients outside facility walls. Care guidance drives patient behavioral change and uncovers and addresses the barriers hidden with social determinants of health, along with improving care transitions, collaboration, and knowledge gaps, leading to rapid improvements in patient outcomes and satisfaction, as well as readmission rates.
Programs Tailored to HRRP Conditions
Guideway offers care guidance programs tailored for each of the conditions/disease states covered under HRRP, with effective, evidence-based protocols for:
- Heart Failure
In fact, out of the 47 top readmission factors for these conditions combined, Guideway’s program can directly impact 34 factors with non-clinical interventions.
Guideway Care’s care guidance services are the lever your organization needs to reduce or remove your readmission penalties.
