Helping High-Risk Patients Stay Healthier and at Home

At Cardinal Health, we support healthcare leaders as they implement best practices to transform patient care. A particular focus for many of them, as a result of a rapidly aging population and ever-increasing healthcare costs, is the prevention of avoidable hospital readmissions for high-risk patients.

Here, we visit with two such leaders, one a naviHealth customer, and the other the recipient of a Cardinal Health Foundation E3 Grant. With very different approaches, each is working to help improve the quality of life for seniors with multiple chronic conditions, and, at the same time, is reducing healthcare costs.


Looking for ACO success? Look no further than post-acute care

Results from a recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that ACO participation was associated to reductions in post-acute care (PAC) spending through reductions in discharges, length of stays and acute inpatient care. These findings further reinforce the importance of PAC spending for the success of ACOs, as well as provide evidence that ACOs – a key value-based initiative – can reduce Medicare costs and improve quality of care.
