Post-Acute Care & Readmissions Management

Developing a strategic approach to post-acute care (PAC) and readmissions is a fundamental requirement for any organization managing value-based care. While PAC and readmissions are important drivers of the total cost of care under fee-for-value, organizations should not ignore these areas under fee-for-service models as 55% to 85% of excess hospital days are related to PAC discharges.

Using data-driven best practices, Guidehouse experts help leaders solve their biggest challenges related to PAC and readmission management quality improvement. Our team consists of former PAC executives and nursing home administrators, physicians, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, and analysts who ensure leaders maintain a balanced, robust clinical and financial approach to best serve the needs of communities.

Strategic Planning: Proprietary demand-analysis to “right size” needs and develop a robust PAC strategy to determine the best build, buy, or partner fit.

PAC Network Development: Quality performance, patient preference, geographic restrictions, network adequacy, expected demand, and available capacity methodologies to develop preferred PAC partnerships.

Operational Effectiveness: Operational assessments of existing PAC services to improve care transitions, enhance performance and productivity, incorporate continuum of care and virtual care, and sustain long-term improvement.

Readmission Prevention: Reduce and prevent readmissions by improving care transitions, developing cross-continuum care pathways, integrating ambulatory and inpatient care management services, and improving PAC coordination.
