Integrate Pharmacy Staff Into the Medication History Process
You'll see intensified efforts at your hospital to prevent readmissions...to help maximize Medicare reimbursement.
Excess 30-day readmissions will cost hospitals $428 million in the next year. These are patients initially admitted for MI or heart failure...pneumonia...COPD...or hip or knee replacement. CABG patients will be added in 2017...but keep in mind that data are being collected now for this measure.
Work as a team to provide the best care for your patients...and help them stay out of the hospital.
