Shannon Skilled Nursing Facility Enhances Care Transitions and Lowers Readmission Rates

Highlights Summary

  • Shannon Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) achieves lowest hospital readmission rate in community, nearly 10 percent lower than national SNF average
  • Shannon Medical Center implements PeraTrend™ house-wide, allowing more complete view of patient condition
  • Clinicians include PeraTrend’s real-time Rothman Index (RI) in making team decisions on patient discharges and transfers

Reducing readmissions has been one of our goals for many years. We’ve recently seen a pattern with many patients being readmitted to our hospital from LTC facilities. We want to partner with these referral facilities and improve care together.
