This guide outlines in detail a four-step approach to help health care administrators and providers address avoidable hospital readmissions. In addition, it details a variety of strategies from interventions that have proven successful at reducing unplanned readmissions. All approaches are designed to help hospitals reduce readmissions at three points: during hospitalization, at discharge, and immediately post-hospitalization. The authors also categorize the projected level of effort required to implement each of the included strategies.
