Atrium Health’s Personalized Approach to Reduce Readmissions

10:45am - 11:15am Friday, March 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W308A

Description

Since 2010, Atrium has achieved a 4 to 6 percent reduction in readmissions annually. Patients participating in Atrium’s Transition Services also demonstrated a 35 percent reduction in readmission rates compared to those receiving typical post-discharge care. Due to these efforts, Atrium has improved patient outcomes, as those who are readmitted are less likely to require ICU-level care during future hospitalizations, and patients who interacted with the transition services team had a 35% reduction in readmissions in general and a 50% reduction in readmissions related to sepsis. Healthcare technology has improved the readmission prevention program by streamlining workflows geared toward near-real-time identification of at-risk patients, improved communication among the care team, and provides for virtual care capabilities. The utilization of more robust analytics, focusing on SDOH, and improving patient engagement also play a key role in reduced readmission rates.trail Archives
