Health Care Leader Action Guide to Reduce Avoidable Readmissions

image

The guide is designed to serve as a quick, simple resource by outlining four steps:

  1. Examine your hospitals current state of readmissions
  2. Assess and prioritize your improvement opportunities
  3. Develop an action plan of strategies to implement
  4. Monitor your hospital's progress

The guide also synthesizes the underlying strategies from the interventions that have been successful in reducing unplanned readmissions. The strategies put forth in this guide could help hospitals reduce avoidable readmissions across three stages of the care continuum: during hospitalization, at discharge, and in the period immediately following discharge.

There is a slide presentation associated with this report.
