About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties associated with unnecessary re-hospitalizations averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates.

More facilities will be impacted in subsequent years as Medicare broadens the scope of its focus on re-admits. How would you rather use that money?

Join us for a webinar to learn about our two-phased approach to reducing the impact of these penalties on your facility.
