In conjunction with Dobson | DaVanzo and Associates, the Alliance has released a new data analysis on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model, which found that the use of home health after a hospital stay is associated with cost effective care and lower readmission rates for Medicare patients who have undergone major joint replacement surgery. The analysis closely examines the distribution of discharges for patients from the hospital to various post-acute care (PAC) settings, the average Medicare payment per episode by first PAC setting, and the average readmission rate for related conditions.
