2,597 Hospitals Facing Massive Readmissions Penalties This Year
CMS will withhold more than $500 million in payments under its readmissions reduction program
Whether you’re managing a regional hospital or a nationwide health system, you’re focused on improving outcomes and the patient experience. At the same time, you need to reduce cost and complexity. That’s why RescueTouch supports your population health management initiatives and helps you stay connected to patients with cost-effective solutions that are easy to deploy and manage.
Reduced Readmissions = Lower Costs.
Seniors utilize more healthcare resources per capita than any other group and 66% of Medicare recipients have multiple chronic conditions. RescueTouch brings you cost effective senior care management solutions to maintain patient relationships—replacing equipment and labor with a modern patient help alert system that requires minimal support and training. By staying connected to patients after their discharge, you can keep patients out of medical environments while significantly reducing the number of costly readmissions.
By eliminating the need for monitoring companies to be an unnecessary middleman, we can provided a faster, more direct provider/patient communication system at significantly less cost.
Immediate Awareness = Better Outcomes.
RescueTouch’s exclusive CareCaller™ system creates a better connection between the patient and the healthcare system. By providing patients with instant one button direct communication to their caregiver or healthcare provider, patients are encouraged and enabled to call their caregiver at the first sign of problems or complications. This results in quicker awareness of a medical problem. Patients do not have to wait until the next appointment or worse, the need to be sent or returned to the emergency room for a costly readmission.
Best of all, RescueTouch’s exclusive CareCaller™ system is fully customizable and scaleable to fit seamlessly into your Healthcare System. Our team of help alert professionals can fully configure your CareCallers to call and text your staff and/or office(s) in one office or many nationwide. As an added benefit, your CareCallers can also be “private-labeled” to include your own inserts, instructions and packaging.
Pilot Program Available.
No need to commit to a system-wide implementation before you are ready. We offer all of our established healthcare providers with a painless, risk-free pilot program initiative. Here is how it has been implemented successfully:
- Start with just a few (50-100) CareCallers in one or more locations.
- Ask a small group of your in-home nurses to provide them to a few of their patients with chronic conditions (heart failure, COPD, etc).
- Monitor patient usage for 26 weeks.
- Analyze the weekly call reports.
Let us prove the cost savings (from reduced hospital admissions/readmissions) and better patient communications that a CareCaller can provide your healthcare organization for less than $1/day/patient. If you are not delighted with the results at the end of the pilot program, you are free to cancel your service without further cost or obligation.
