Hospital/post-acute partnership is key to hospital success under value-based payment initiatives that extend accountability for cost and outcomes beyond any one setting. Additionally, post-acute providers rely on partnerships to grow referrals. But while cross-continuum partnerships have become more common, outcomes have not necessarily improved to the extent that providers have hoped. Why?
Hospitals and post-acute providers may need to change how they build and use partnerships in order to drive the desired return on investment. Hospitals and post-acute providers should take advantage of the full range of partnership models available, establish partnerships in which both types of providers play equal roles, and continually invest in partnership initiatives to reap the full benefits of an aligned cross-continuum strategy.
