The CIO Perspective
Addressing the challenge of reducing hospital readmissions using manual processes is not a viable long-term solution. With other IT mandates demanding time and attention, your readmissions initiatives may suffer. However, with the right health information technology (HIT) platform, you can sustain efforts to reduce readmission rates and make processes more efficient and effective. Enabling interoperability and access to real-time data is key. Organizations that integrate real-time data from disparate sources for analysis can proactively reduce readmissions and build competencies for accountable care.
