Hospitals are being penalized for readmissions…ACOs are looking to bundle payments…The demand for improved patient outcomes is the new reality for post-acute providers. Home health providers must demonstrate outcomes and control rehospitalization rates in order to thrive in this new healthcare world.
CareAnyware partnered with Cornell Weill Medical College and The National Institute of Health to study the impact that identifying and treating depression could have on rehospitalization rates.
The result? A 40% decrease in rehospitalizations among patients suffering from depression!
“The study showed that technology and training can make a real difference in clinical outcomes and quality of care. The depression CAREPATH improved the quality of patient care, reduced their depressives symptoms, and lowered their rates of rehospitalization.” – Martha L. Bruce, Ph.D., M.P.H – Professor of Sociology in Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry ~ Weill Cornell Medical College
