CMS Readmission Reduction Programs
This Medicare value-based program encourages hospitals to improve communication and care coordination to engage patients and caregivers in discharge plans to reduce avoidable readmissions. Our solutions include educational programs that address critical patient learning to help reduce risk of readmission for the conditions noted in the CMS Readmission Reduction Programs including: acute myocardial infarction (AMI), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure (HF), pneumonia, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and elective primary total hip arthroplasty and/or total knee arthroplasty (THA/TKA).
