Assignment: Reducing Readmissions: Brief to the Board of Directors
In an effort to reduce the high costs of health
care, health care executives, physicians, and clinical staff establish
guidelines to minimize the rates of readmissions for patients. While
certain medical conditions may require that patients are readmitted into
health care organizations, for less urgent or extensive medical
conditions, ensuring that health care service is administered
effectively the first time will go a long way in minimizing readmission.
From a financial standpoint, patient readmissions constrict health care
services, resources, and staff that would otherwise be used to treat
new patient cases. From effective health care delivery, a patient who is
readmitted may be an indication of poor quality health care delivery,
ineffective process workflows, or inefficient patient care.
For
this Assignment, review the resources for this week. Reflect on how
health care executives might address the board of directors of a health
care organization in order to reduce readmissions. Within the context of
Medicare reimbursements, how will reducing readmissions benefit the
health care organization?
The Assignment: (2 pages)
Write a brief to the board of directors explaining how you, as the
chief executive of the hospital, would implement strategies to reduce
readmissions within the context of Medicare reimbursement. Be specific
and provide examples.
Be sure to include support from the literature.
