Small hospitals don't have the same sort of support networks of a Tenet or an HCA. Volume is typically not high enough to justify large investments in centralized call centers, to take advantage of centralized purchasing agreements, or to leverage investments (and spread the costs) in technology across a hundred different facilities. Yet Value Based Purchasing hits Community Hospitals just as hard. Every dollar lost to excess readmissions is a dollar that can't be spent on the patient. CipherHealth understands these unique challenges and has developed solutions to manage VBP penalties, even on a Community Hospital budget.
