In the future, Skilled Nursing Facility ("SNF") readmission rates could be subject to penalties similar to those CMS has put in place for hospitals, such as when SNF readmissions to a hospital occur for certain conditions, within a particular timeframe.

(Be sure to read The Camden Group's article, Leveraging Post-Acute Care to Address Acute Readmissions here.)
This infographic, created by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, describes how an integrated SNF network supports accountable care.
