Inland Empire Foundation for Medical Care (IEFMC)/Foundation Accountable Care Network (FACN) ACO optimizes post-discharge workflow and reduces readmissions rate with MX tools

The Inland Empire Foundation for Medical Care (IEFMC) is one of the most comprehensive preferred provider organization (PPO) networks in Southern California, comprised of more than 2,000 physicians, ancillary providers, and 27 hospitals in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Organized by IEFMC, the Foundation Accountable Care Network (FACN)® is a Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO, a voluntary Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) alternative payment model that encourages groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers to come together and provide coordinated, high-quality care to their Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries. As a Shared Savings Program ACO, FACN is accountable for the quality, cost, and experience of care for their assigned beneficiary population.

IEFMC’s FACN ACO has been a participant of Manifest MedEx (MX) since 2018 and relies on MX’s admission, discharge, transfer (ADT) notification services, MX Notify, and MX’s longitudinal health records, MX Access, to initiate prompt post-discharge follow-up, coordinate high-quality care, and prevent avoidable readmissions.

Learn how, with MX tools, FACN ACO has seen a 39.4% reduction in patient readmissions post-discharge, a 3.1% reduction in ER visits, and a 5.3% reduction in ER visits leading to hospitalizations in our latest case study below!
