The ACO realized a 40 percent increase in post-discharge referrals to case management, 30 percent increase in post-discharge appointments kept, 39 percentincrease in medication discrepancy, and a 10.2 percent readmission rate (compared to Medicare average of 21 percent).

The 18-month process at the Temple, Texas-based healthcare organization resulted in a reduction of redundant problems and interventions, and minimized verbiage and decreased mouse clicks that improved user satisfaction and compliance.
