Hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) and your bottom line

A large U.S. hospital in the lowest performing 25 percent can face $1.1 million in lost reimbursement annually and it’s not much better for mid-sized hospitals. See below to understand the numbers behind the issue and what you can do about it.

HAC scores and large hospitals

  • 32 percent

    In 2018, an estimated 32% of large U.S. hospitals will occupy the lowest performing quartile for HACs.*

  • 113.7 million

    For large U.S. hospitals—those with 500-1,000 beds—annual median Medicare reimbursement adds up to approximately $113.7M*

How will that lowest HAC quartile affect your bottom line?

Large U.S. hospitals in the bottom quartile for HACs are automatically slapped with a 1% reduction in Medicare reimbursement for the year. Do the math!

How can you stay out of the bottom quartile?

With 3M software and services, your hospital can identify real-time patient data and assess key information before the patient is discharged, helping your quality team identify and verify patient safety indicators (PSIs) and hospital-acquired conditions (HACs). An automated 3M system also helps improve communications between CDI reviewers and coders—yet another tool to help you decrease PSIs and HACs.
