In an effort to reduce the high costs of health care, health care executives, physicians, and clinical staff establish guidelines to minimize the rates of readmissions for patients. While certain medical conditions may require that patients are readmitted into health care organizations, for less urgent or extensive medical conditions, ensuring that health care service is administered effectively the first time will go a long way in minimizing readmission. From a financial standpoint, patient readmissions constrict health care services, resources, and staff that would otherwise be used to treat new patient cases. From effective health care delivery, a patient who is readmitted may be an indication of poor quality health care delivery, ineffective process workflows, or inefficient patient care.
For this Assignment, review the resources for this week. Reflect on how health care executives might address the board of directors of a health care organization in order to reduce readmissions. Within the context of Medicare reimbursements, how will reducing readmissions benefit the health care organization?
