Tackling the Biggest Challenge Facing Nursing Care

Hospitalizations Drive Costs Up

Learn More

One hospitalization transfer costs between $10,000-$13,000 each. These costs are paired with rehab costs after hospitalizations ranging between $7,000-$14,000. Altogether, these visits cost Medicare billions per year. In an effort to combat these rising costs CMS placed penalizations on preventable hospitalizations.

CMS Push to Reduce Cost

Learn More

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are pushing providers to reduce costs through penalizations to hospitals and nursing homes for costly readmissions. Current models assume even more risk and CMS continues to push providers to value-based care to reduce costs over time.
