Reducing ER Visits, Hospital Admissions and Readmissions
for Older Americans
Managing Chronic Conditions is Key
Heart disease, diabetes and respiratory illness are at epidemic levels and they contribute to a huge number of hospital admissions. Data from WellMed shows how extended care management of older Americans with chronic conditions may reduce ER visits, hospital admissions and readmissions.
Local residents eligible for Medicare and diagnosed with one of these conditions can switch to a health plan designed specifically for managing their condition, such as diabetes, heart disease or chronic emphysema.
Also, plans are available that provide coverage and financial assistance for people who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid to help get the care they need. Qualified people can switch to these plans at any time. The Star-Rating system rates Medicare plans based on the quality of care they receive.
