Salt Lake City, May 1, 2017 – Today, Leavitt Partners released a new white paper, entitled “Post-Acute Care Optimization in a Value-Based Economy: Bridging the Gap Between Hospitals and Home.” The white paper addresses how the move to a value-based payment environment has necessitated that health systems tackle post-acute care spending and care management with amplified attention.

In the last 14 years, Medicare payments to PAC providers have more than doubled, and PAC costs can represent up to 70 percent of an episode of care for certain episodes like COPD. The white paper details some of the components that are most essential to successful PAC management programs as they seek to reduce variation in costs and quality including:

  • Adopting a partnership approach;
  • Identifying the right site of care and coordinating between the sites of care;
  • Utilizing analytics to measure PAC performance;
  • Engaging patients and family/caregivers;
  • Leveraging effective communication and technology tools; and
  • Maximizing high-performance PAC networks.

The full white paper can be viewed here.
