Hospitals using the Web-based eDischarge software-as-a-service (SaaS) application have significantly cut readmissions overall for the second year in a row and in 2010 saved on average about $1.5 million each, according to the Newton, Mass.-based Curaspan Health Group, the industry leader in building secure electronic patient-transition networks for hospitals, post-acute providers and suppliers to optimize patient care.

A review of aggregated 2010 data for 168 Curaspan hospital customers with 150 beds or more reveals a 14 percent readmission rate overall versus approximately 20 percent nationwide. Customers access on-demand data via eDischarge as well as a portfolio of 30 standard weekly and monthly reports that includes four readmissions-related reports.

The readmissions reports available in the Curaspan Clinical Data Bank enable hospitals to easily track readmissions by diagnosis, physician, placement and provider. By regularly reviewing readmissions data, hospital staff is well-equipped to respond to troubling trends by identifying the root cause.
