Working in the nation’s leading hospitals, we observed first-hand how difficult it was to find post-acute services for patients needing additional care upon discharge. Dozens of phone calls and faxes were required to complete a single placement, and patients and their families often felt confused and left out of the process.
Nearly half the Medicare patients who are hospitalized each year require post-acute care through skilled nursing, inpatient rehabilitation, long-term care hospitals, and home health agencies.
While these providers play an essential role in the continuum of care, the quality of services delivered varies widely. As a result, Medicare spending on post-acute care has doubled over the last 10 years, and 1 in 4 patients are readmitted to the hospital. There is high variation in readmissions from post-acute providers.
At CarePort Health we are helping hospitals identify quality care for their patients while also empowering patients and families with the information to choose the right care provider. By giving hospitals an online platform to coordinate efficient and high-quality discharges, we ensure that patients get the post-acute care they need without delay.
We believe that all patients deserve seamless, safe, and timely transitions on their road to recovery. Contact us to learn more about how we can work together to improve care transitions.
