Long-Term Care: A Crucial Piece of the Readmissions Puzzle -
Presented by NTOCC Advisors Council Member, AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine
November 5, 11a CST
The Long-Term Care Continuum (LTC) is actively utilized to permit earlier discharges from the acute care setting. The consequence is a transition of patients who enter this environment "quicker and sicker," thus, more fragile and susceptible to hospital returns, which encompasses emergency department visits without hospital admission, hospital re-admissions and observation stays. Prior to the institution of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), such returns to the acute environment were considered an acceptable consequence of the increased patient acuity entering LTC. Penalties now accompany excessive returns. This presentation will address some key portions of the ACA driving current behavior to diminish readmissions. Additionally, actions which the LTC facility can embrace to reduce hospital returns will be discussed.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1- Determine the frequency of readmissions to the hospital for Medicare patients generally & in the LTC continuum.
2- Understand current programs to reduce 30 day readmissions to the hospital.
3- Be aware of provisions of the Accountable Care Act (ACA) created to reduce 30-day hospital readmissions.
4- Objective 4:Learn techniques which can reduce 30-day hospital readmissions from the nursing facility.
