MANAGED CARE PROGRAMS
Today most patients suffering from complex chronic conditions are returning home from hospitals less healthy and more vulnerable to rapid decline. The average length of hospital stay has diminished dramatically in the last few decades. Optimal care for these patients requires focus on better engaging patients and their loved ones after being discharge from hospitals with extensive followup care. Readmission have gained allot of attention in recent years, one in five seniors who are discharged from a hospital are re-hospitalized within 30 days.
