Changes to reimbursement and funding has meant reducing acute care hospitalizations isn't just good for your patients, it's critical to your agency's bottom line as well. Hospitalization is extremely expensive, accounting for one third of the $2 trillion in total annual health spending in the U.S. last year. Perhaps surprisingly, as many as one in nine hospital admissions is a re-hospitalization - when a patient is readmitted to hospital within 30 days. For the elderly, re-hospitalization can be traumatizing, yet it might be avoidable. Learn proactive solutions to improve your readmission rates using the PDSA approach.  

Objectives:

  • Define and utilize a PDSA approach
  • Identify the primary causes of readmissions in your agency
  • Develop a Performance Improvement Project that will fit into the new Quality management & COP
  • Discuss the process to be used including data sources and education components

Apply this information to achieve both positive change and compliance with the new QM process
