Pedagogy’s Online Education Courses Prevent Hospital Readmissions
 
Pedagogy, Inc., today’s most innovative provider of online educational courses, has a broad range of educational courses designed to address the healthcare issues most likely to lead to hospital readmissions. 
This comes at a critical time in health care, as Medicare’s Hospital Readmission Reduction Program has just announced new tougher penalties for hospitals.  Reducing hospital readmission rates became a top priority due to nearly one in five Medicare patients being readmitted to the hospital, costing the government $17.5 billion in 2010. Top-notch education of nurses and staff is of critical importance.  Pedagogy is partnering with facilities across the U.S. to build infusion and clysis programs to prevent hospital readmissions.  From infection and falls prevention to disease management, Pedagogy’s online educational courses are custom made to reduce patient rehospitalizations.
 
Accountable care is changing the dynamics of the hospital/LTC relationship, and hospitals need LTC partners that can deliver high-quality care that keeps readmissions down.  With Pedagogy as your online education provider, costly and unnecessary hospital readmissions can be prevented.
