Developing Advanced Clinical Pathways for High-Risk Disease Across Your Post-Acute Network

According to the National Council on Aging, 80% of older adults have one chronic illness while nearly 70% have two or more. Drill down further and you’ll see that 40% of Medicare patients hospitalized for injury or illness are discharged to post-acute care (PAC). Unfortunately, up to 25% of them, particularly those with chronic diseases, are readmitted to acute care within 30 days. These conditions are costly with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, COPD, and kidney disease driving 75% of healthcare spending and readmissions.

In our latest publication, Phyllis Wojtusik demonstrates the critical importance of developing clinical pathways between acute and post-acute providers for chronic disease management and prevention of high-risk readmissions.
