The Alliance for Home Health Quality and Information recently completed a study finding that the Medicare program could, “save as much as $100 billion over the next 10 years and the life of the Medicare Part A Trust Fund could be extended by 2.5 years if post-discharge patients were served in more clinically appropriate, cost effective settings and care delivery was restructured,” says The Alliance. The Clinically Appropriate and Cost Effective Placement Project (CACEP) consists of four working papers that focus on episode payments, patient pathways, hospital readmissions and other issues related to post-acute care delivery. The findings provide a case for the importance of clinically appropriate home care to reduce Medicare costs.
