Home Health Care As a Vehicle for Reducing Avoidable Hospital Readmissions

Home Health Care As a Vehicle for Reducing Avoidable Hospital Readmissions

With a focus on hospital inpatient discharges, Excel found that, over a four-quarter period between 2016 and 2017, approximately 1.3 Million inpatient discharges were coded for follow-up home healthcare; meaning skilled intermittent nursing and/or therapy at home. A half million of these patients – about 40% - did not receive the follow up care that was anticipated upon discharge. The 60% who did “adhere” to their discharge instructions had measurably lower 30-day readmission rates. Looking at 2017 alone, home health patients that adhered to their discharge instructions were approximately 35% less likely to be readmitted. Read it Now

The Curious Case of the Disappearing Home Health Patient and the 2.5 Billion he took with Him

It is a well-accepted fact that the not all home healthcare appropriate patients get the care they need. Would it surprise you to know that on average, nearly 40% of patients that were referred from hospitals to home healthcare last year were not actually admitted into home healthcare? And that those patients represent nearly $2.5 Billion in lost revenue annually for home health agencies? Not to mention the impact on these patients, who without skilled care have a greater risk of negative outcomes, including readmission. Read it Now

Home Health Adherence: 50 State Report

Home Health Adherence: 50 State Report

As we reported in “The Curious Case of the Disappearing Home Health Patient – And the $2.5 Billion He Took With Him” the facts surrounding the adherence rate for inpatient discharges to home health are startling. A comparison between patients who were discharged following a hospital stay to home health in 2016 and those who actually received the anticipated follow-up care shows that nearly 40% of the patients in this group end up without the services that they need within 30 days of their hospital discharge. Further, a series of studies done at the University of Pittsburgh covering approximately 4,300 patients confirms that better discharge planning would likely have resulted in a 25% improvement in hospital readmission rates. Another study done by the Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation together with the United Fund, confirmed that younger patients discharged with home health instructions were those less likely to seek care but more likely to be readmitted.
