MED1 Healthcare helps post-acute care providers manage more medically complex patients and reduce readmissions by providing off-hours nursing staff with telephone and video access to emergency medicine physicians.
Patients discharged every day from hospitals who require post-acute care.
Post-acute care Medicare patients who are re-hospitalized within 30 days of discharge.
Re-hospitalizations that are avoidable (costing more than $26B/year).
Post-acute care facilities are working harder today than ever before to partner with referring hospitals.
Both are fighting to reduce readmissions, even while patient acuity continues to increase.
A Harvard study finds after-hours telemedicine can reduce the total readmission rate of post-acute care facilities by more than 10 percent. With these lower readmission rates, facilities can:
Deliver improved clinical outcomes
Maximize daily census and reimbursements for increased revenue
Distinguish themselves from other care facilities
Secure relationships with hospital partners and encourage more referrals
