Helping patients stay out of the hospital once they’ve been discharged has been a longtime priority for many hospitals, health networks, and health plans. Now it has become a financial imperative too, thanks to provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. For the past six years, McKesson has researched and developed readmission reduction strategies as an integral part of care management strategy. Our approach focuses on the coordination of handoffs and aligns with the criteria endorsed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge).
