As a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, readmissions have become a new area of focus as care delivery moves from a volume-based model to a value-based one. Acute hospitals are calling upon post-acute providers to assist them in improving care coordination to avoid penalties. Post-acute providers are taking steps to become the provider of choice as hospitals, health systems, and managed care organizations turn to them for support.

In the absence of proven historical programs, this book gives hospital executives and post-acute care providers proven tactics and tools they can apply to reduce and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations. Written in a conversational style by a seasoned healthcare executive, the book starts by defining the origins of readmissions and the impact of the ACA, then describes three phases of readmission prevention planning and offers innovative strategies for executives to position their facility as a provider of choice. Specific readmission prevention tactics are addressed for different levels of post-acute care.
