Overview

Preventable hospital readmissions are costing the healthcare system approximately $25 billion on an annual basis, and it is estimated that one out of every five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. In an attempt to control excessive spending on avoidable healthcare costs as well to as improve quality care, performance and patient health, CMS has instituted new regulations and higher penalties. Hospitals and health systems are especially affected by the new mandates, and are exposed to increasing financial risk.

We have created a high-level forum featuring providers and payers who will share their insights and expertise on how to lower readmission rates through recognized and proven discharge programs and follow-up plans, simultaneously reducing costs and improving quality of care. This impressive program will include distinguished members from highly regarded institutions comprised of hospitals, health systems, health plans and industry experts; featuring best practices to utilize in today's rapidly evolving world.

This is the only conference on Reducing Hospital Readmissions that will equip you with innovative strategies and tools to be better prepared for 2020. By attending the 2020 Reducing Hospital Readmissions Summit, you will learn what others in clinical integration, utilization management, patient care and reimbursement are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2020. Register today to reserve your seat at the conference and take advantage of early bird discounts!

We look forward to greeting you in New Orleans!

How to Effectively Leverage Big Data to Reduce Hospital Readmissions: Implementing Effective Strategies Based on Results

By utilizing historical patient data, providers can start to see which factors will impact future health outcomes, and begin to develop risk score and predictive algorithms to create tailored care interventions. Creating analytics out of Big data is useful, but only when implemented properly. The key is to develop strategies that work to take what the data is telling us and turning it into actionable items. In this session, we will:

  • Discuss several analytic tools to help manage readmissions  
  • Discuss how to take these results and turn them into actionable items
  • Discuss how to determine which areas/conditions first since we all have limited resources
