About the Webinar
In this session you will learn how you can better manage hospital readmissions to help reduce costs, improve operations and increase patient satisfaction through data automation and predictive modeling.
One in five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) considers 40%-75% of these readmissions to be preventable, and in FY 2013 will impose financial penalties on hospitals with higher than expected readmission rates. Other payers are certain to follow making hospital readmissions an impending priority.
MedStar Health, Washington Hospital Center, will share how they are managing hospital readmissions through predictive modeling to risk stratify readmission probability at the time of inpatient discharge. See how this innovative approach from Microsoft provides new information, not previously available, critical in managing hospital readmissions.
From this Webinar you will learn:
- How to identify root causes of prevent-able readmissions
- How to proactively identify patients at risk for repeat admissions
- How Microsoft Readmission Manager enables organizational leaders & front-line providers to implement actions to reduce preventable readmissions
