Patient Readmissions

March 12, 2023

Patient readmissions have become revolving doors in healthcare.

One of the continuing problems with the quality of treatment services have been government concerns over the high numbers of patients failing to complete treatment. Many times after discharge, patients are re-admitted for care at the same or other facilities.

Even when patients are discharged from services as “treatment complete”, they are often left with no aftercare plan. Usually patients have infrequent referrals to basic After Care services.

CARF Accreditation surveyors frequently mention how treatment programs usually lack linkages with the community. Patients are left to find AA sponsors, networking for jobs, sober living arrangements, and communications with treatment case managers is lacking. Numerous treatment programs are cited on CARF surveys for their clinical programming failures. Frequently, these same programs lack basic data collection systems. 

The Addictions Consulting Group (ACG) is a national consulting firm specializes in writing organization policies to assure compliance with CARF Standards. We provide an expert team of senior professionals, and offer clients experience, insight, and sample CARF policies. The ACG Team offers inexpensive assistance with writing CARF Planning manuals, strategic Organization Plans, training, and quality outcome reports.

In today’s climate of scarce resources for behavioral health programs, only those programs that can credibly demonstrate their cost-effectiveness and outcome reliability will garner the funding necessary to sustain and expand their efforts.
