Reining in Avoidable Readmissions

1 Mins read

I’ve been having the readmissions pull-out from H&HN Magazine on my desk for a few weeks. The data and information includes some starting points for improving your hospital re-admission rates and avoiding the penalties that are coming. I thought the stat on patients readmitted within 30 days who had not visited a physician between discharge and readmission (50%) to be a bit of a surprise. I also like the self-portrait checklist and other resources provided. One suggestion I have is for hospitals to be more engaged with their community partners, such as, home health and SNFs. It really is about looking at this from a community-wide approach and understanding the caregiver processes outside of the hospital that impact re-admission rates.
