The entire health care industry is being challenged to lower readmissions. New regulations will penalize facilities for unnecessary readmissions within a 30-day period. This makes your care transition decisions more important than ever. Knowing which post-acute facility is best-matched for each patient, based upon unique risk factors, empowers the right decisions and lowers the risk of unnecessary readmissions.
The RightMatch service from PointRight matches estimated, patient-specific readmission risk to providers’ post-acute performance grades to improve the process of comparing the post-acute location under consideration for a patient. RightMatch provides the expected 3- and 30-day readmission rates at each skilled nursing facility and Home Health agency. The patient’s risk is based on a checklist that includes demographics, diagnoses, conditions, functional status and the treatments to be continued at the post-acute setting.
