Post-Acute Care

There are a hundred paths to home in post-acute care. We guide patients to the right one.

The Challenge

Post-Acute Care (PAC) is fragmented.

Health plans often do not have the specialized resources to manage the complexity of the post-acute care continuum, resulting in increased risk for adverse patient outcomes, waste, and additional costs. To solve for this, CareCentrix implements an end-to-end post-acute care program on behalf of our clients, managing patients’ post-hospital discharge throughout the entire care continuum.

  • Savings Home Health

    Post-acute care accounts for an estimated 20-25 percent of total spend in Medicare Advantage plans1

  • Payers absorb wasteful spending

    Payers absorb $17.5 billion in wasteful spending while patients face unnecessary medical risks and costs2

  • Hospital readmissions

    75% of hospital readmissions are caused by preventable errors3

Why Choose CareCentrix as Your Post-Acute Care Partner?

To help select the right site of care for the right length of stay, the CareCentrix Post-Acute Care program provides personalized care with an emphasis on the home. The CareCentrix program:

  • Reduces unnecessary utilization of SNFs
  • Reduces readmission rates
  • Makes the home the center of care
  • Proactively engages patients from hospital to home

The CareCentrix Approach

CareCentrix works with network providers – including hospitals, Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), and home care providers – to connect a patient’s journey across the continuum, identify paths for care that help optimize clinical outcomes, and identify patients most at-risk for readmissions so we can help them get the follow-up care they need. The program also coordinates the services patients need to transition to care at home safely, via home health, durable medical equipment (DME), and home infusion providers.
