Unnecessary Hospitalization:  Priority #1

AHCA/NCAL President and CEO Mark Parkinson recently released a video to the membership outlining suggested priorities for 2016. He rated hospital readmission as the top issue. Parkinson states, “I would suggest that (re-hospitalization rates) probably the most important thing providers should work on. It’s important that we do it right now, because not only do payers care about it right now, the measuring point appears to be from July 2016 so that you really have to be in pretty good shape with your re-hospitalization rate by the time July 2016 rolls around.” To view the entire video, click here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snP8Y9qay-c
