FOUR STRATEGIES TO BOOST SHARED SAVINGS WITH POST-ACUTE PARTNERS
The post-acute care (PAC) network is the highest cost segment in an ACO. Within that network, skilled nursing facilities account for nearly half of all PAC costs. So it makes sense that they also present the greatest opportunity for ACOs to reduce costs and increase shared savings.
In this publication, Phyllis Wojtusik discusses four strategies ACOs can implement to access and use current patient data generated during the post-acute stay to increase shared savings: better risk stratification, improved clinical performance, reduced acute readmissions, and shorter lengths of stay.
