The Affordable Care Act established the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program which requires CMS to reduce payments to hospitals with excess readmissions. Over 2,200 hospitals were penalized in the first year of the program which has prompted hospitals to make a concentrated effort to improve their readmission rates.  In its effort to link payments to performance CMS continues to impose financial penalties on hospitals for excessive readmissions in its Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP).


Using Medisolv’s unique Predictive Readmission Score, hospitals can easily identify patients at the highest risk for potential readmission even before discharge resulting in more focused Case Management and Discharge Planning.


Learning Objectives:

  • The Hospital Readmissions Reductions Program (HRRP)
  • What do readmission penalties cost your hospital?
  • Product demonstration: RAPID business analytics uses your MEDITECH DR to drive Predictive Analytics that analyze, score and alert you to patients at risk for early readmission
  • Questions & answers
