Preventing Hospital Readmissions with HealthCare Partners
24 Hour Home Care is collaborating with the 2nd largest managed care group in California, HealthCare Partners, to study how 24 Hour Home Care’s Hospital-To-Your-Home™ program, a high touch and low-cost care model, can improve patient outcomes and reduce preventable hospital readmissions for patients with congestive heart failure.
24 Hour Home Care analyzed data from 2012 and 2013 to determine that Hospital To Your Home™ significantly lowers the risk of hospital readmissions. In 2012, the clients of 24 Hour Home Care had a 6.3% rate of readmissions within 30 days of discharge, in comparison to the national average of nearly 20%, according to statistics from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services. Data from 2013 is currently being finalized.
The Hospital to Your Home™ study will initially examine 20 clients receiving care as well as a control group of 20 patients with the same condition not receiving care, from the 1st day of hospital discharge to the 30th day of discharge. The first 20 patients of the study will be fully funded by 24 Hour Home Care. If the results are positive, 24 Hour Home Care and HealthCare Partners plan to enhance the study
