Partnering with Hospitals to Reduce Readmission Rates
Home care companies are playing a big part in helping hospitals reduce readmission rates. Parts of the Affordable Care Act are designed to reduce hospital readmissions, and penalize hospitals if readmission rates are too high. So, more hospitals are starting to work with home care companies to ensure that patients get the care they need at home, keeping those rates low. Our CEO, Lenny, talked more about home care companies partnering with hospitals this week in Homecare Magazine.
