Transitioning Hospice-Eligible Patients
Watch this video to see how VITAS can help your hospital achieve the 1.000 readmissions adjustment factor.
Meeting the 1.000 Readmissions Adjustment Factor
As more medical conditions become subject to CMS readmission penalties, it makes sense to transition your hospice-appropriate patients. That's one of the ways your hospital can meet the 1.000 readmissions adjustment factor and receive the full Medicare reimbursement.
How VITAS Can Help
We help you identify hospice-eligible patients in your hospital and we smoothly transition them to an appropriate, non-acute setting. Our services reduce the likelihood of readmission by:
- Team members including physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, and chaplains visiting the patient and family 5-6 times per week
- Giving patients access to clinical professionals 24/7 through our Telecare service
- Offering 24/7 continuous care at home when medically necessary
With these services, our patients and their families are never alone.
