CMS Proposed Ruling on Post-Discharge Follow Up Calls
The latest proposed ruling from CMS focuses on hospitals implementing a post-discharge follow up call program in 2016. The ruling is based on a number of recent findings from CMS and the AHRQ that focused on transitioning patients from the hospital to their home or home health agency. Improved patient outcomes and reduced unplanned readmissions attributed to a comprehensive post-discharge follow-up program have led to this new ruling from CMS. The official proposed ruling can be viewed at http://federalregister.gov/a/2015-27840. - Learn more
