As post-acute care costs increase, now accounting for $1 out of every $4 spent by Medicare Advantage plans, health plans are focusing on post-acute care management, according to a new infographic by CareCentrix.

The infographic examines the top five strategies healthcare organizations are using to manage post-acute care.

Medicare’s proposed payment rates and quality programs for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) for 2017 and beyond solidify post-acute care’s (PAC) partnership in the transformation of healthcare delivery. Subsequent to the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act), forward-thinking PAC organizations realized the need to rethink patient care—not just in their own facilities but as patients move from hospital to SNF, home health or rehabilitation facility.

Post-Acute Care Trends: Cross-Setting Collaborations to Align Clinical Standards and Provider Demands examines a collaboration between the first URAC-accredited clinically integrated network in the country and one of its partnering PAC providers to map out and enhance a patient’s journey through the network continuum—drilling down to improve the quality of the transition from acute to post-acute care.
