Providers collaborate to reduce readmissions.
Hosp Case Manag. 2014 May;22(5):69-70
By working together and meeting regularly, San Francisco Bay-area hospitals and post-acute partners have prevented an estimated 4,000 readmissions. The program included education for participating hospitals on evidence-based readmission reduction models and other available tools. Hospitals analyzed their readmission data and determined which patients were coming back and why. Representatives of hospitals and post-acute providers meet regularly and collaborate on better patient care.
