Coordinated pilot program reduced COPD readmissions and costs in less than 1 year

 

The Integrated COPD Care Initiative was a 2017 pilot program aimed at reducing hospital readmission rates and acute to post-acute care-associated costs in patients with COPD.

The Integrated COPD Care Initiative was a 2017 pilot program aimed at reducing hospital readmission rates and acute to post-acute care-associated costs in patients with COPD.

Through the deployment of evidence-based care strategies, pathways, and processes, the Initiative achieved impressive 30-day readmission and cost reductions after just 3 fiscal quarters.

The results of this Initiative warrant a thorough review by any hospital system or payer committed to improving outcomes and controlling costs in their COPD populations.

Reducing re-admission and costs are challenges

Hospital icon

Too many patients continue to suffer through repeated hospital readmissions, increasing the burden COPD places on their lives. In addition, starting in 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began penalizing hospitals for readmissions within 30 days in patients with acute exacerbations of COPD as well as denying hospitals payment for those reimbursements.

 

The results of this Initiative warrant a thorough review by any hospital system or payer committed to improving outcomes and controlling costs in their COPD populations.

Up to 40% of COPD patients are misdiagnosed each year.
