Potentially Preventable Hospitalizations
Potentially preventable hospitalizations are both common and costly. According to an AHRQ study, nearly 4.4 million hospital admissions for acute illnesses or worsening chronic conditions totaled $30.8 billion in hospital costs. These patients might not have required hospitalization had their conditions been managed successfully in outpatient settings.
By harnessing the power of predictive analytics, patients at risk for hospitalization can be identified in a timely manner. Healthcare providers can turn this insight into action by implementing targeted care management strategies, such as improved ambulatory care, enhanced access to effective treatment, or the adoption of healthy behaviors. Helping patients avoid hospitalizations can lead to better health outcomes and contribute to containing—or decreasing—healthcare costs.
