ENJOY 5 KEY HEALTH BENEFITS
What happens when a Medicare patient is discharged from a hospital and goes home?
One in six Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days. This startling fact was revealed in a recent Dartmouth Institute study of over 10-million Medicare patients. More than half didn’t follow up and see their doctor within two weeks after leaving the hospital.
Analyzing the hospital records, researchers found “widespread and systematic failures in the coordination of care for patients” after discharge from the hospital.
Every year since 2013, Medicare has penalized hospitals for their increasingly high 30-day re-admission rates of Medicare patients. In 2016, a total of 2,597 hospitals—representing half of the nation’s hospitals—were penalized over half-a-billion dollars.
