Right at Home Selected for Government Funding to Curb Hospital Readmission Rate

With one in five Medicare patients returning to the hospital within 30 days of release, the U.S. government has implemented a financial penalty in an effort to reduce the staggering number of readmissions and curb the $17 billion annual cost associated with preventable readmissions. In search of solutions, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMS) developed the Community Based Care Transitions Program (CCTP), which provides funding for different models that aim to reduce hospital readmissions.
