Care teams at Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) reduced emergency department (ED) visits by 46 percent and penalties associated with Medicare readmissions with the help of Cerner Acute Case Management. As CMS adds diagnoses and increases readmission penalties, health systems are responding by developing new ways of identifying and keeping costly, repeat patients out of the hospital. “We know the readmission penalties,” said Kim King, SMMC Administrative Director of Care Coordination. “But when you think about frequent unnecessary ED visits, it’s about patients who don’t need those services but are utilizing them – oftentimes at a cost to the hospital.” King is referring to the drive behind an SMMC program, Bridge Care, that originally aimed to reduce how often 75 specific patients visited the ED by 25 percent. At the completion of the first year, visits decreased by 40 percent. By the end of 2014, visits had decreased by 46 percent.
