The National Readmission Prevention Collaborative was created to unite industry leaders in sharing Best Practices in care transitions and readmission prevention for hospitals, SNF's and other providers. NRPC provides educational resources, certifications, case studies, intensives and events as well as access to products, tools and services that improve the care continuum.
The Discharge with Dignity guide was developed to be used as a tool for hospital case managers, discharge planners and social workers in planning for post acute care for patients. More than 20 health systems nationwide have written requesting permission to utilize the guide for training and implemented the "home first" approach. The guide's goals are two-fold: 1) To encourage doctors and hospitals to consider sending a patient home with resources, to age, heal and recover at home as opposed to in an institution if home is a possibility, and 2) The guide utilizes multiple colors to illustrate and represent the financial penalties for hospitals and doctors if patients are consistently discharged from the hospital to post acute institutions such as acute rehab, long term acute care or skilled nursing. Hospitals around the country have implemented this guide for daily use as it presents a dramatic shift from the mindset of discharge planners during the fee for service era.
