CMS Announces Proposed Ruling for a Post-Discharge Follow-Up Program
Please click HERE for more information regarding the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recent announcement on a new proposed ruling that hospitals establish a post-discharge follow-up program. 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.3 Along with cost, other supporting evidence for a post-discharge follow up process include patient compliance, adherence to discharge instructions and medication regimens, all which point to an improved care transition. The official proposed ruling can be viewed at http://federalregister.gov/a/2015-27840.
