Stratifying readmission risk using patient behavior markers may augment effectiveness, scalability and cost effective implementation of existing intervention programs.

TrueWind Advisors®, LLC, announced the release of a new white paper “Closing the Readmission Management Loop.” The white paper highlights a new patient centric solution paradigm for reducing hospital readmissions of heart failure patients. The complimentary white paper is available for download at

“Readmission rates are a high priority for hospitals and directly influence their reimbursement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services,” said Steve Andrade, President of TrueWind Advisors® and co-author of the white paper. “In particular, patients suffering from congestive heart failure are vulnerable to being readmitted resulting in high costs per case.”

“There are numerous interventions that have demonstrated reductions in readmission rates; however, current readmission management solutions are limited by a lack of scalability, implementation costs and lack of patient intervention specificity,” said Michael Yuan, Ph.D., CEO of Ringful Health and co-author of the white paper. “Given the extensive research conducted in this area, a fresh approach that uses mobile technology to capture patient behavior markers and self-reported outcomes for stratifying risk and tailoring intervention intensity may be helpful.”

The white paper discusses the following topics:
-Current readmission reduction interventions
-Challenges in predicting readmission risk
-The role of patient behavior markers in predicting risk
-Example of a closed loop patient centric solution
