CRT is dedicated to improving patient outcomes in the Post-Acute Care industry. We have been diligently keeping track of readmission rates and reasons for admission with our Partner facilities to show the effectiveness of our Transitional Program.
Our staff works with each Partner facility to keep track of total patients seen by CRT as well as track readmissions of those patients along with reason for those admissions. We compare this data with the previous data from the facility to evaluate the Delta in readmissions before and after our Program is initiated.
We presented our Data and findings at the Symposium lead by our Cardiology Partner, Dr. Junaid Ahmed. Symposium was held April 11th 2019 in Jacksonville, Florida
Objectives were to:
• Identify characteristics and drivers of Hospital readmissions for vulnerable populations.
• Identify best practices and evidenced-based strategies to manage at risk populations.
• Hospital Health systems ( Mayo, Baptist)
• Health service Providers, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Case Managers, Social Workers
All purpose readmission rate for all CRT patients on average was 6%. Compared to 2017, our sample size has increased (2174 vs 3267) given the partnerships with multiple hospitals but yet our readmission rate continues to stay low. Cardiac/ Kidney Related Readmission rate is even less.
