Executive Summary

Post-acute care is a range of services that complement the care delivered by an acute care hospital after an illness or injury. Patients who require post-acute services are those who are no longer in critical situation but still need quality care and services. Such patients are usually discharged to post-acute care setting such as home health and hospice centers, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) and long-term acute-care hospitals (LTACs). Most modern hospitals and health care systems include a number of services or programs that fall into the category of post-acute care. The primary aim of post-acute care services is to recover patients from illness and return him to daily activities that the patient participated in before illness or injury.

In the US, large numbers of patients are covered under Medicaid and Medicare insurance health programs. Nearly 40% of beneficiaries who are covered under Medicare program have discharged from an acute care hospital to post-acute care settings such as skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) or home health. These settings provide important rehabilitation services but there are certain criteria to guide decision about where beneficiaries should be treated and how much care they should receive.

The US post-acute care market, has shown fluctuating trends over the past few years but projections are made that the market would gain momentum over the forecasted period i.e. 2017 to 2021. The market is expected to grow on the back of aging population, rising healthcare expenditure, increasing prevalence of multiple chronic conditions, rising Medicare spending on post-acute care, technological advancements, mergers and acquisitions in the industry. Yet the growth of the market is obstructed by factors such as lack of interoperability, declining reimbursement and introduction of value-based payment.
