The new resource titled Hospital Guide to Reducing Medicaid Readmissions (www.ahrq.gov)
Medicaid readmission reduction efforts. It helps identify readmission risks, transitional care needs, and adapt best practices from proven strategies like AHRQ’s Re-Engineered Discharge, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s State Action on Avoidable Readmissions, and the Society of Hospital Medicine’s Better Outcomes for Older Adults Safe Transitions to serve the transitional care requirements of Medicaid patients. Hospitals at different stages of readmission reduction work can benefit from implementing this guide.
