MU program to improve nursing home care reduces hospitalizations by nearly 50 percent, saving major dollars for Medicare

Published on December 26th, 2017

In an article from the University of Missouri News Bureau, Sheena Rice details a new federal report which reduced hospitalizations and saved Medicare thousands of dollars per person. Read an excerpt below:

Researchers from the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing are continuing to see success in their work to improve quality of care in nursing homes. In 2016, a federal report found that the Missouri Quality Initiative for Nursing Homes (MOQI) reduced potentially avoidable hospitalizations by 48 percent and reduced hospitalizations from all causes by 33 percent. This reduced total Medicare expenses by $1,376 per person, saving 33 percent of the costs of all-cause hospitalizations and 40 percent of potentially avoidable hospitalizations.
