Moving Beyond Patient Experience to a Better Human Experience
How software advancements are connecting caregivers and patients in powerful new ways
Over the past several years, hospital and health system leaders have been struggling to lowers costs and navigate unprecedented change, while also keeping employees engaged and patients safe and satisfied. This is critical as reimbursement is increasingly being tied to results from patient satisfaction surveys, which many systems have struggled for years to improve.
Smart leaders and organizations realize that there is one factor above most that can either make or break their success – communication.

Reducing Readmission Rates
Effective Transition Planning and Discharge Follow-Up
Reducing readmission rates is a key objective of today’s top performing hospitals. Readmission measures are estimates of unplanned readmission to an acute care hospital in the 30 days after discharge from a hospitalization. Patients may have had an unplanned readmission for any reason.
A quick query of the Hospital Compare data at the Medicare.gov site shows that for the latest reporting period (July 1, 2016 thru June 30, 2017) 1,912 hospitals scored below the 50th percentile for 30-day hospital-wide all cause unplanned readmissions. 1,152 hospitals scored in the 50th – 74th percentile. In a value-based reimbursement environment the penalties and costs to hospitals for excessive readmissions are very real.
