Lowest Readmission Rates in the Country
The SHCT program’s readmission rates were among the lowest of all programs that took part in the demonstration project. In fact, SHCT was the only program invited to present its findings at the CMS Quality Conference, held in Baltimore in December 2016.
The SHCT program has won over many patients too. A recent survey showed that 99 percent of patients surveyed would recommend the program to others. Results also indicate that patients grew measurably more confident that they can manage their health conditions during and after the SHCT program.
