To quote your link:

(As hospitals make moves that improve care, and reduce readmission rates from infections, their revenues drop, said Sitarik.

"We have made great strides in improving our quality outcomes," said Sitarik. "But these gains have also triggered lowered revenues due in part to a reduction in readmissions.")

How bizarre. I guess this is why a public health system can work better, because if a patient goes away healthy and stays healthy its seen as a good outcome, not as lost future revenue.
