Reduce Hospital Readmissions by 52% with CARD
Real Time’s patent-pending Readmission Risk Scoring Tool, CARD, identifies patients who may be at high risk for rehospitalization. Based on the LACE Index, CARD detects subtle changes in condition and pushes live alerts to clinical teams, including suggested interventions, when data indicates the potential for a negative outcome. Each patient is assigned a color-code of “green/yellow/red” allowing clinicians to quickly see who is at highest risk for readmissions.
Utilizing comprehensive algorithms to analyze live data within the post-acute EHR, CARD applies a point–based system on four key indicators within the EHR.
C – Clinical Alerts
Number of real-time clinical alerts that occurred in the last 72 hours
A – Admission Proximity
Score based upon number of days since admission, with fewer days increasing the score
R – Readmission History
Scored if any hospital or ER visits in the last 180 days
D – Diagnosis Score
Based upon existence of specific, active diagnosis/comorbidities
