Do you know what Healthgrades, CMS or other online ratings are saying about your joint program? Are complications or readmissions affecting your scores?
The Accountable Care Act is focused on improving outcomes and reducing readmissions. With good reason. With regard to joint replacements, a complication adds approximately $1400 to the cost of care while a readmission will cost over $10,000. Furthermore, these patients are occupying beds that could be used for new cases. And finally, patients with complications are far less satisfied, resulting in lower online scores for you, your program or your practice.
If you are looking for ways to improve your surgical outcomes or reduce readmissions for joint replacement patients, watch Peg Pickering, Director of Surgical Services at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital and Michelle Bianco, VP of Operations at Accelero Health Partners discuss the keys to an efficient and effective joint replacement program.
