Hospitalizations interfere with an elderly person’s daily living, but a hospital readmission can cause even greater disruption. Many times, the quality of life for an elderly patient can be affected when they return to the hospital, potentially putting their health at greater risk. The impact is equally substantial for post-acute care facilities and agencies as you start to bear the financial burden of hospital readmissions.
Failing to lower patient readmission rates can lead to:
- Fewer or potentially lost referrals
- Stronger financial penalties
- Higher costs to deliver care
In addition to clinical resources, the McKesson Readmissions Resource offers access to several business tools and services to help you tackle readmission rates. We’ve teamed with leading service providers to bring you discounts on solutions to improve the quality of care.
