A 2007 report from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) estimated that 18% of Medicare hospitalizations result in a readmission within 30 days of discharge. The financial impact of these readmission cases accounted for $15 billion in spending. According to MedPAC’s estimates approximately 80% of studied readmission incidents were believed to be preventable, translating to roughly $12 billion in unnecessary expenditures. Estimated costs of preventable readmission for patients with private insurance are believed to be at least as high as those paid by Medicare.
B.I. Voyage has teamed up with Predixion Software to provide our provider & plan clients with a readmission solution to identify and reduce the number of avoidable readmission cases experienced by hospitals. Our innovative approach to readmission management takes a prospective view. By examining the historic readmission patterns specific to each medical facility our readmission solution is able to create a scientifically-based model that can be immediately implemented for the identification of patients currently admitted and that are at an elevated risk of readmission with great precision.
