Addressing the Top Hospital Readmissions

According to an April 2009 study in the New England Journal of Medicine, re-hospitalizations in 2004 contributed to an estimated cost of $17.4 billion. Currently, 30-day readmission rates for certain conditions are reported publicly by CMS. The pressure is mounting for hospitals to understand and improve patient outcomes, and failure to prevent readmissions could ultimately cost hospitals and physicians significant time, revenue, and reputation.

"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation regarding future approaches to hospital readmissions.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your expertise as a Physician and experience as a Hospitalist @ Northwestern Memorial Hospital.  In addition to your experience as an Instructor and Research Clinician @ Feinberg School of Medicine..

Education @ discharge is vital toward the prevention of readmission.  Clear communications with pts and their caregivers regarding the diagnosis, treatment and medications are the key factors that must be dealt with in order to keeping the pt healthy thus, avoiding an unnecessary hospital readmission. 

Great lecture concerning the dangers of care, transitions, current interventions, future interventions and new structures in healthcare.  Again, I believe that comorbid conditions, as well as, clear concise discharge instructions must be addressed in order to prevent an avoidable readmission. 

Again, yet another excellent power point in your presentation on the topic concerning future approaches to hospital readmissions in the series entitled addressing the top hospital readmissions.  Your lecture provided a wealth of up-to-date research regarding discharge planning and yes, I agree the key toward improvement in compliance rates is education and clear communication with the patient, family, caregivers in the home, PCP and specialists involved with the patient. 

 

Thanks,

Valerie"
