HELPING PATIENTS REDUCE THE RISK OF PREVENTABLE RE-HOSPITALIZATIONS 

Nearly one in five Medicare patients returns to the hospital within a month — about two million people a year. Many of those re-admissions are preventable. The majority of re-hospitalizations are not for the principal diagnosis, and 70 percent of post-surgical hospitalizations are for conditions like pneumonia, heart failure, and gastrointestinal problems that cause most hospitalizations in the elderly.

Alaris’ Member Health Centers and their partner hospitals are taking steps to reduce these readmission rates through patient education and other practices.

“Families are thrilled to have the support of the Alaris Health at West Orange staff to help their loved ones to have the best recovery,” says Ms. Pardi. “Our medical team is in constant contact with the medical staff at the discharging hospital to reduce the rate of readmission.”
