Predicting hospital readmission using AI
One of the biggest challenges to prevent readmissions is identifying patients who are at risk.
To crackdown on hospitals with high readmission rates and to improve patient healthcare, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) apply payment penalties to hospitals with higher than expected readmission rates. As a consequence, about 82 percent of CMS organizations received reduced reimbursements under the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program in 2019. Healthcare leaders need smarter solutions to help prevent emergency department readmissions.
