Care Guidance Holds the Key to Reducing Hospital Re-Admissions

Doctors In Hospital

Why Care Guidance?

  • Hospital Readmission Rates Impact Costs: unplanned readmissions cost Medicare a staggering $26 billion annually, straining healthcare budgets, eroding quality-of-care and the patient experience and impeding provider/health system value-based care arrangements.
  • Non-Clinical Issues Stall Health Equity: social factors, including socioeconomic status and race contribute to health inequities and readmission risks. Patients facing these disparities are at a higher risk of readmission within 30 days of discharge for chronic conditions.
  • Care Guidance Solution Reduces Readmissions:  specially trained care guides work with patients, using tech-enabled platforms to identify and proactively resolve non-clinical barriers to accessing care. 

Guideway Care’s latest article in Healthcare Business Today highlights the innovative approach of care guidance in reducing hospital admissions/re-admissions. Readers learn the value of addressing non-clinical issues and social factors to achieve better patient outcomes. This article delves into the value that a care guidance solution brings to support hospitals and healthcare organizations to meet their goals for value-based care. This approach helps reduce readmissions and improve patient experience, ultimately advancing health equity and enhancing the overall quality of care delivery.
