FINAL HEALTH REFORM LEGISLATION INCLUDES SIGNIFICANT PROVISIONS AFFECTING READMISSIONS

Health reform will bring significant changes for hospitals in the area of readmissions. Although there are many references to readmissions in H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the most significant provisions are in two sections -- Section 3025, which creates the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, and Section 3026, which creates the Community-Based Care Transitions Program. Click here for an official, searchable PDF of the legislative language in H.R. 3590.


AHRQ REPORTS HOSPITALS SPENT $3O.8 BILLION ON 4.4 MILLION UNNECESSARY READMISSIONS IN 2006

2010 MedPAC REPORT TO CONGRESS DISCUSSES ALIGNING FINANCIAL INCENTIVES OF HOSPITALS AND POST-ACUTE CARE (PAC) PROVIDERS

Although making no formal recommendation, the 2010 MedPAC Report to Congress filed in March discusses the desirability of aligning hospital and PAC provider incentives. Click here to read Chapter 3 of that report.


NATIONAL MAP OF CMS TRANSITIONS OF CARE PILOTS

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on April 14, 2009 announced 14 regions that will participate in a pilot project to reduce preventable hospital readmissions through improved care coordination. Under the Care Transitions project, state quality improvement organizations will work with health care providers and other organizations to implement community-wide interventions, including those that target specific diseases or conditions and reasons for admission. The project is expected to run through July 2011.
