Role of Post-Acute Care in New Care Delivery Models

With new models for the delivery of health care, post-acute care provides — long-term care hospitals, skilled nursing  and rehabilitation facilities, and home health agencies — have an important role to play. They can help reduce hospital readmissions, improve care coordination and care setting transitions, and participate in the development of bundled payment approaches.

A new Trendwatch report from the American Hospital Association looks at the factors driving changes in post-acute care and highlights innovative examples of how leading post-acute care providers and health systems are adjusting and creating new business models to improve patient care.

A separate addendum report provides more background on Medicare spending by sectors within post-acute care and their patient characteristics. Medicare’s current fee-for-service system by post-acute care venue is also summarized.
