10 Dec Aetna-CareCentrix Partnership Cuts Down on Hospital Readmission Rates
CareCentrix, a company that manages home-based care benefits, has partnered with Aetna’s commercial members in Florida. Through CareCentrix’s HomeSTAR program, the two organizations cut Aetna member re-hospitalization rates by almost 20 percent.
The HomeSTAR program helps patients transition from the around-the-clock care they receive in hospitals to taking care of their own needs when they return home. When they leave the hospital, patients get more than a discharge notice and a wheelchair ride to the door. They receive in-home risk assessments, coaching and coordination with hospital staff from CareCentrix.
