2022 Stronger - PH409 - Utilizing a Predictive Model to Prevent Readmissions - On Demand
Predictive modeling allows hospitals to identify patients at high risk for readmission, prioritize post-discharge follow-up for those at high risk for readmission and reduce readmission rates. The readmission risk score has transformed the way we care for patients by tailoring care to readmission risk factors, improving care coordination between disciplines, prioritizing discharge milestones, and communicating discharge barriers or delays in a timely and organized manner. The first 10 months post-implementation, our 30-day all-cause readmission rate decreased from 12% to 9.6%.
- Healthcare Executives
- Other Healthcare Professionals
- Discuss how a predictive modeling tool uses risk stratification to reduce 30-day hospital readmission rates.
- Identify interprofessional, evidenced-based workflows that optimize patient care while decreasing 30-day hospital readmission rates.
