NAUH’s June 2012 Newsletter

Read about Medicare’s plans for paying hospitals for inpatient care in FY 2013 – both what its proposed inpatient prospective payment system regulation says and what it does not say – in the June 2012 edition of NAUH Update, the National Association of Urban Hospital’s newsletter.

Among the provisions in that proposed regulation is a new hospital readmissions reduction program.  While this new program would judge all hospitals according to a single set of criteria, the American Heart Association recently shared research that found that hospital readmission rates are more closely tied to socioeconomic factors and access-to-care issues than they are to hospitals’ performance – something NAUH has long maintained.  Read about these new findings in the June NAUH Update as well.
