At Cleveland Clinic, geriatricians “pre-rehabilitate” older patients in preparation for a lung transplant, as the number of geriatric patients needing the procedure has grown.
In an effort to reduce preventable readmissions, Cleveland Clinic’s Connected Care Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) program offered provider visits to selected SNFs up to five times a week.
Reducing the rate of readmissions can be a costly proposition. This study validates the effectiveness of an easy-to-use readmission risk prediction tool in the skilled nursing facility setting that can help allocate resources effectively and keep costs down.
Patients leaving the hospital enter a complex and potentially dangerous maze. The Center for Connected Care is integrating and standardizing services to create a brave new approach to post-acute care.
