Respiratory Readmission Reduction Program

For Post-Acute Facilities

The Problem:

  • CMS-mandated readmission reduction and penalties are in effect.
  • Post-acute facilities must collaborate with hospitals to reduce COPD, CHF, and pneumonia re-hospitalizations or risk losing those referrals.

The SRS Solution:Hospital Readmissions

  • Our unique, evidence-based Respiratory Readmission Reduction Program provides the best practices you need to successfully rehabilitate your high-risk cardiopulmonary patients and prevent them from returning to the hospital.
  • Our highly experienced Respiratory Care Practitioners (RCPs) support and train your nurses in the care of your patients with cardiopulmonary disorders.
  • We provide patient self-management education to ensure that patients and caregivers are prepared when they go home, and are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital.
  • Our Respiratory Readmission Reduction Program is customizable to meet the fluctuating needs of your facility and patient population.
  • Flexible scheduling allows you to increase or decrease the presence of RCPs in your facility depending upon your census, patient acuity levels, and skill levels of your nurses.
  • We provide performance metrics demonstrating the success of your Respiratory Readmission Reduction Program and improved satisfaction of your patients.

Additional Benefits to You:

Additional Benefits to Your Patients and Community:

  • As respiratory patients recover faster, they are able to tolerate more aggressive therapies provided by your therapists and nurses.
  • Your patient satisfaction rates will soar as they recover more completely and regain their independence.
  • Increased patient self-efficacy is the result of disease self-management education.  This is the key to preventing rehospitalization after patients leave your facility.
  • Patients will want to return to your facility to continue rehabilitation on an outpatient basis.
