Staggering Numbers

High Cost of Readmissions

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 75% of readmissions are preventable. These unplanned readmissions can lead to increased costs for hospitals and health care organizations. In some cases, the medical bills may never be paid or reimbursed. In others, Medicare may levy fines for excessive three-day readmission rates. In those situations, this can translate to:

  • Fines as high as 3% of a provider’s Medicare reimbursement
  • $10,000 to $15,000 in added expenses for every avoidable readmission

A Comprehensive Reference

One of the most common complaints from discharged patients is that they do not believe their condition or prescriptions are properly explained. Patients frequently leave the hospital feeling confused about how to manage their recovery. Complicated medication regiments combined with other discharge instructions can make it difficult for patients to maintain compliance and recover appropriately. Providing patients with a well-organized discharge folder that serves as a comprehensive reference when they leave the hospital opens an opportunity for improving outcomes, reducing hospital readmissions and increasing HCAHPS scores.
