2022 Stronger - PH410 - Bundled Interventions: The Answer to High Resource Utilization? - On Demand
Many hospital systems face external pressures to improve patient outcomes while simultaneously reducing health care cost drivers, such as length of stay (LOS) and readmissions. By focusing on bundled interventions centered around multidisciplinary care coordination, we reduced LOS and readmissions while also improving our mortality index — despite increasing patient complexity. Our experience highlights the importance of identifying high-resource users and common themes that contribute to readmissions. Given the numerous factors involved, a successful approach requires implementation of a targeted, multifaceted program that addresses the unique needs of every patient population.
