Transition of Care Management Analytics
The goal for healthcare providers, employers and patients is to reduce the down time and the cost of being hospitalized. Everyone benefits when the patient can leave the hospital and resume their everyday activities as soon as possible.
Hospitals directly benefit from low readmission rates in that they can be fined by Medicare if those rates are too high. Artificial intelligence (AI) based systems in health care streamline the transition process from the hospital to home or care facilities and help to identify and mitigate the factors related to readmission.

When patients are actively engaged in their post-care it can lead to better quality of care and reduce the number of readmissions for treatment. In a study conducted by McKinsey, it revealed that patients were often surprised by unexpected medical complications after the acute event. This included 44% of the of the follow-up care that was considered unplanned and involved inpatient treatment, such as hospitalization. One-third of this unplanned, follow-up treatment could have been avoided by eliminating unclear discharge instructions and insufficient post-acute medical care.
