Item imageChanges in Readmission Incentives & Accountability
Presented by Eric A. Coleman, MD, MPH, this webinar will address proposed changes in how hospitals are reimbursed for readmissions. The discussion will provide a historical perspective on hospital reimbursement and review the literature on demographics and frequency of hospital readmissions. Opportunities to prevent readmissions will be reviewed within the general context of post-hospital follow-up and care. The session will also review national quality improvement initiatives and current and pending incentives and penalties related to readmissions and care coordination. Highlights from a recent consensus document authored by 6 physician professional societies will be referenced to provide a framework for discussion accountability. The session will conclude with an update of proposed changes in national health policy.
