QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"Avoiding the CMS' readmission penalties rolled out this month should be top of mind for healthcare organizations. Hospitals face a penalty cap of 1 percent of Medicare revenue this fiscal year, on up to 3 percent in FY 15. Dr. Boutwell's rich background and diverse experience in readmission reduction, particularly in the area of care transition management, will no doubt be useful to organizations wishing to avoid the financial impact from certain 30-day readmissions."
