National Hospitalization Avoidance Program

National Hospitalization Avoidance Program

Kindred at Home – Hospice Division has a 35% Lower National Live Discharge Rate*

Patients participating in our Hospitalization Avoidance Program are 48.3% less likely to admit to the hospital in the first 30 days of hospice care (i.e. revoke hospice for hospitalization when hospice could manage/address the issue)

Our program provides appropriate coordination and care management techniques in order to avoid burdensome transitions. We layer care management services upon the traditional hospice care model to specifically focus on:

  • Reducing hospitalizations
  • Improving patient and caregiver satisfaction levels
  • Providing a feedback mechanism for a higher level of care delivery

We focus on education needs and early identification of symptom management, and work in conjunction with the patient’s hospice care team:

  • We layer “Comfort Care Calls” to provide an additional layer of support and relationship for patients at high risk for live discharge and re-hospitalization
  • We engage our patients and their caregivers in “Call Us First” education for symptom and pain management
  • The hospice agency ensures GIP contracts are in place so our patients may return for symptom management under the care of hospice without impacting readmission or mortality rates
