With Healthcare reform, Medicare modifications including reimbursement for inpatient care have come under close scrutiny. Admission diagnoses for this population include Congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Over 20% of these patient require readmission to the hospital within 30 days resulting in significant increased expense. Hospital are subject to penalty for these readmission and may denied payment for the patient second admission resulting in significant loss of revenue. Post discharge clinics evaluate patient medications/diagnoses, home support, and primary care follow-up. These interventions become opportunities for hospital affiliated and private urgent care working with hospitals.
