Executive Summary

Post-acute care is a continuum of facilities that accompanies the care delivered by an acute care hospital after major illness or injury. Post-acute care services are required by those patients who are no longer in life-threatening condition, but still demand quality care and services for a speedy recovery. Such patients are usually settled to post-acute care settings such as home health & hospice centers, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), and long-term acute care hospitals. Maximum number of modern hospitals and health care systems in the U.S. include wide number of services that fall into the category of post-acute care. The main purpose of post-acute care service is to improve the overall condition of the patients and enable them to return to their daily activities that the patient participated in before the illness or injury. In the U.S., large number of patients are covered under Medicaid and Medicare insurance health programs.
