Non-Medical Home Care Can Prevent Rehospitalizations

How can non-medical home care agencies enable effective care transitions after hospitalizations?

Industry data shows that hospital re-admissions are frequent and expensive.

  • 19% of Medicare patients are readmitted within 30 days of discharge from hospital.*
  • 20% of patients experience post discharge adverse events.*
  • 75% of elderly rehospitalizations (which equates to 4.4 million people a year) may be preventable.*
  • Readmission often results from incomplete communication across a fragmented healthcare system.
