A Collaborative Blueprint for Reducing SNF Readmissions: Driving Results with Quality Reporting and Performance Metrics

Concerned about escalating hospital readmissions from skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and the accompanying pinch of Medicare readmissions penalties, three Michigan healthcare organizations set competition aside to collaborate and reduce rehospitalizations from SNFs.

To solidify their coordinated approach, Henry Ford Health System (HFHS), the Detroit Medical Center and St. John's Providence Health System formed the Tri-County SNF Collaborative with support from the Michigan Quality Improvement Organization (MPRO).

A Collaborative Blueprint for Reducing SNF Readmissions: Driving Results with Quality Reporting and Performance Metrics outlines the roots, framework and results of the SNF collaborative, detailing participation requirements for the more than 130 member SNFs that were developed in tandem with the skilled nursing facilities.

To help patients transition from a skilled nursing facility (SNF) to independent living, the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio visits high-risk patients at SNFs within 10 calendar days of admittance, explained Danielle Amrine, the council's transitional care business manager. Ms. Amrine describes seven key questions to ask patients during the SNF visit, how field coaches assess the SNF patient's risk for readmission to the hospital, and the council's novel arrangement for completing the SNF visits.
