With an eye toward reducing readmissions, Crenshaw developed Transitions-in-Care, a new module within Oak Street Health’s IT platform. It gives clinicians a more detailed view of patient data, pulling from nearly 1,300 datasets, allowing them to take proactive steps to reduce the risk of readmission. As a result, Oak Street has seen a 15% drop in year-over-year 30-day readmissions since 2017. And Oak Street’s readmission rate is 40% better than the average reported by the CMS.
