Implementing a System-Wide Strategy
Swing bed programs are an essential service for hospitals and the rural communities that they serve. However, we know many Critical Access Hospitals affiliated with health systems, and the health systems themselves, face challenges related to fully optimizing the Critical Access Hospital swing bed program. Collaborating with rural & community hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals, our team is uniquely positioned to significantly improve these processes with our evidence-based approach for swing bed optimization and growth at both the local and system levels. With a multifaceted approach, Critical Access Hospitals can improve patient outcomes, keep care local, and reduce readmissions. At the same time, the health system can coordinate care at multiple levels, minimize patient leakage, and maximize reimbursement.
Our Approach to Care:
Quality, Outcomes, and Opportunities
Integrated with Stroudwater’s Clinical and Quality team, our Data & Analytics team drives efficiency and increases profitability with innovative, cloud-based products. Our swing bed applications allow health systems and Critical Access Hospitals to easily view relevant information and key findings, as well as access swing bed program benchmarks throughout the state. With this information, hospital leaders can inventory the care delivery of inpatient post-acute skilled services available at each rural & community hospital and use this information to define, expand, and market their services to regional referral partners.
