U.S. healthcare expenditures reached $3.3 trillion in 2016, which is more than the GDP of the United Kingdom or France; and hospital re-admissions have contributed substantially to that soaring number.
Provide medical and social supports to improve the health of patients leaving the hospital.
We are working to reduce hospital re-admissions through a home-visitation partnership with Birmingham Fire and Rescue.
Through home-visitation and follow-up programs for specific patients, St. Vincent’s Health System has been able cut its hospital re-admission rate in half.
