Rubric Imagine you are an administrator at Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital in Brooklyn. One day you arrive at work to find an urgent memo from your CEO: Medicare has released its data on unplanned 30-day hospital readmission rates, and your hospital is being penalized at the maximum rate for having an exceptionally high rate of unplanned 30-day readmissions. Alarmed by these statistics, your CEO gives you a special project, outlined in Part I and Part II below. Access the following to complete this Assessment: Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital Acute Inpatient Hospital Admissions Payment Policy Brooklyn Presbyterian HospitalUnplanned Readmission Rates (from Medicare Hospital Compare) James, J. (2013). Medicare Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program. Retrieved from http://www.healthaffairs.org/healthpolicybriefs/brief.php?brief_id=102 This assessment has two-parts. Click each of the items below to complete this assessment. Part I: Analyzing HRRP Policy and Evaluating Hospital Performance Read the Health Affairs Policy Brief on the Medicare Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program. Then, analyze the document Brooklyn Presbyterian HospitalUnplanned Readmission Rates, which presents statistics on the unplanned readmission rates at the hospital and how they compare to the national averages. Also, review the current, Acute Inpatient Hospital Admissions Payment Policy document. Use these resources to develop a report (45 pages) to the CEO that completes the following: Describe the key elements of the Medicare Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) established in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Identify two factors at Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital based on the current policy that contribute to the risk of failing to meet HRRP criteria. Explain how current internal practices and the changes in policy might positively impact alignment to current and future healthcare laws. Suggest one revision to the current policy to help Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital meet HRRP criteria. Suggest one change in current practice across the hospitals organization in order to help Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital meet changes in Medicare reimbursement. Include 23 sentences explaining the importance of adapting internal policies and practices to align with changes in healthcare laws and regulations. Describe at least three key elements needed in a new program to earn the maximum reimbursement under HRRP by reducing readmission rates. Create five goals for Brooklyn Presbyterian Hospital for earning the maximum reimbursement by following the HRRP criteria. These goals may focus on processes or outcomes. Part II: Developing an Action Plan to Maximize Reimbursements and Adapt to Change Political pressure will result in changes to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) policy and reimbursements. Develop a 10- to 12-slide presentation, to senior management, proposing strategies for executing a plan for earning maximum reimbursement under HRRP, specifically by changing the behavior of providers and patients. Your goal is to secure resources to put your plan into action. In this presentation, explain your approach, your plan for implementation, at least two ways you will prepare and monitor for change in CMS policy, and your education plan for staff.
